Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream


Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

When we were children, my sister and I took turns sitting on top of the churn while our daddy hand cranked to make our ice cream.  It seemed an eternity before we were ready to eat the ice cream.  I know now that it was our daddy who wondered how long he would have to keep hand cranking!  Now, we are fortunate to have electric ice cream makers.  The ice cream can be made inside the house or outside.   The ice cream flavor can be plain vanilla or peach, butterfinger, strawberry, chocolate.......the list goes on and on.  Your choice. 
Making a churn of ice cream is such a treat for your family and makes wonderful memories.   It's summertime.  Make some ice cream.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream  

6 eggs - we use Egg Beaters
2 Tbsp. flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vanilla
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 gallon whole milk

Mix all together, except for whole milk, in a large bowl.  Pour into ice cream freezer.  Finish filling ice cream freezer with whole milk until you reach the full line.  Pack the ice cream maker tub with crushed ice and rock salt.  Plug in electric ice cream maker.  The ice cream maker will stop turning when the ice cream is ready.
