Ice Cream

There is nothing like a bowl of homemade ice cream on a hot summer day!  I have nice memories of my sisters and I our on our back porch, taking turns cranking the handle on our old freezer.  Daddy always had to finish it up when it got too stiff for us kids to turn.

We are trying out our new ice cream maker tomorrow! 

Here is a very simple but very good recipe.  I'm doubling it for our large freezer.

2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups half-and-half cream
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
What to Do
In a bowl, combine all ingredients; stir until the sugar is dissolved. Freeze in an ice cream freezer according to manufacturer's directions. Yield: 1-1/2 quarts.
Note:  For raspberry or strawberry ice cream, substitute 2 cups fresh or frozen berries for 1 cup of half-and-half. Puree berries in a blender or food processor; stir into the other ingredients before freezing.
