Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

My sister, Debra, and I were talking about homemade ice cream recently and she said that she still thinks about all the times that we sat on top of the ice cream churn while our Daddy turned the crank to make the ice cream.  On a hot summer day, homemade ice cream is such a treat.  My favorite is vanilla ice cream.  You can make the vanilla ice cream and add your choice of butterfingers, fresh peaches, oreo cookies, chocolate, strawberries, etc.  You don't have to hand churn the ice cream anymore but it sure brings back memories of when we did have to do it this way.

                                                            Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

6 eggs (we use Egg Beaters)
2 Tbsp. self-rising flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 can Eagle Brand Milk

Mix all of the above together in a large bowl using an electric hand mixer.  Pour into ice cream freezer.  Finish filling ice cream freezer with whole milk.  Plug in your electric ice cream freezer.  Alternate crushed ice and rock salt to fill the tub around the ice cream freezer.  When the ice cream freezer slows down and stops, unplug the ice cream freezer.  You are ready to eat your homemade ice cream.
