Get Your Churn On…

It’s a sweltering 102° today. I’m not being dramatic. It was literally 102°.

We all screamed for ice cream.

I prefer a rich, thick, homemade custard ice cream. It is usually an egg, sugar, and cream mixture cooked over low heat to thicken. But, because of the heat, I am trying to avoid the evil heat of the stove. My mom makes a no-cook, no-nonsense custard ice cream that is very, very good! I decided to take my chances with raw eggs and make this ‘no-heat required’ version!

GiGi’s Homemade Ice Cream

If making plain vanilla ice cream, the addition of a small box of instant vanilla pudding ups the ante a bit.

6 whole fresh eggs

2 cups sugar

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 cup cream

half & half or whole milk (or both)

optional additions: strawberries, crushed Butterfinger candy bars, chocolate chips, or whatever tickles your fancy

Beat eggs, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, cream, and sugar in a 6 Qt. ice cream maker.

Pour in half & half or whole milk (or a mixture of both) to about 3/4 full in the ice cream canister.

Stir in any optional add-ins.

Follow your ice cream maker’s instructions to make a yummy, rich & creamy batch of homemade ice cream!
