Well, Uncle Bob, looks like you pulled that White Mountain ice cream churner out of the shed. The ice cream looks positively yummy. I'll have to try it as I've been in an ice cream kind of mood.

This is an old recipe we've used many times before....This time I'm wanting it to be a bit sweeter...You can taste your custard to see if it suits you...Next time I'm gonna add 1/2 cup sugar........

Enjoy!

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to cut the recipe down to fit my ice cream maker. It's limited to 4 cups of cream/half & half.

Uncle Bob, that looks way better than just okay! Great minds must think alike. For me there is no finer dessert that a bowl of home made French Vanilla ice cream.

This is the recipe I've been using for the past 25 or so years. It makes 1 1/2 quarts, which, for us is more manageable than the recipe that fills one of those huge buckets. You can also find it here:


French Vanilla Ice Cream

I’m not sure what makes this ice cream “French, ” but I am sure that it is the best-tasting vanilla ice cream ever. The electric “crank” freezers, like Cuisinart’s, makes executing this recipe pure child’s play. I think the “Big Kids” like it even better than the little ones!

makes about 1 1/2 quarts

1 vanilla bean
2 cups whole milk
3/4 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 extra large eggs
1 teaspoon Bourbon Madagascar vanilla extract (the vanilla I prefer for all desserts)
2 cups light cream

1. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and use the tip of a small sharp knife to scrape out the seeds. Add the bean and the seeds to the milk in the top of a double boiler. Scald the milk mixture.
2. Mix sugar and salt. Add the hot milk, stirring constantly, and return to the double boiler. Stir over boiling water until thickened.
3. Beat the eggs and add a small portion of the hot mixture. Return to the remaining hot mixture and cook, stirring occasionally until the mixture coats a metal spoon. Chill thoroughly.
4. Add the vanilla extract and cream, and freeze in a hand-crank or electric freezer, following the instructions given with either.

Teacher’s Tips: 1. Make the ice cream up to step 4 and refrigerate it overnight. The next day, it’s a snap to add the cream and churn it to perfect consistency. Do let it “set up” in the freezer for several hours before serving so the flavor reaches its peak.
2. When the ice cream is partially frozen, you can choose from many interesting adds to toss into the mixture: M and M’s, chopped Oreo’s, buttered, toasted pecans, chocolate chips… Let your imagination bring out the kid in you!

p.s. I'm making a batch tonight, if you want to come over.

but then you'll miss the whole summer of ice creams and sherbets! I recommend you play Santa to yourself. They're not that expensive. Just look at how much good store bought ice cream costs. You can make that back in no time.

Technically.. it's frozen custard since it has egg.. but who cares.. Looks AWESOME!!!

I do make ice cream with nothing more than milk/cream sugar and flavoring, usually vanilla. It is VERY good.. but melts quickly. 2 tbls sugar to cup of milk/cream, add flavoring.
