Homemade Ice Cream

15 Sep

Last week we had temps in the 20s and 30s. As Eeyore would say, oh, bother.

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziSo, in a last, ditch effort to squeeze every drop out of summer, I’m making homemade ice cream this week. It’s supposed to warm up considerably (forecast says a high of 90 on Thursday!) so my efforts will be worthwhile.

Homemade Ice Cream Recipe from my Gramma Marcie Brown

Makes about 3 quarts

Tools:

Large sauce pan

Liquid measuring cups

Dry measuring cups and spoons

Whisk and rubber spatula

Ice cream maker (with freezer bowl already frozen)

Large container with lid to store ice cream in freezer

 

Ingredients:

¾ C sugar

1 ½ T cornstarch

4 eggs, yolks and whites separated

2 ½ C milk

1 ½ C corn syrup (light or dark)

2 ½ C half ‘n half

2 ½ C heavy whipping cream

2 t vanilla

In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and egg yolks. (For chocolate ice cream, add 4 T cocoa powder to the sugar.)

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziWhile cooling, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziWhen custard mixture is cool, add vanilla and combine with cream/egg white mixture. My ice cream maker is 2 quarts, and this recipe makes 3 quarts. So, I pour half the mixture into the ice cream maker.

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziBe sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your ice cream maker. When it gets to about this consistency, I stop the machine.

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziIf you want to add chocolate chips, crushed Oreo, toffee bits, etc., pour them in about 5 minutes before the ice cream looks ready. They will mix in really nicely and not all land in the bottom.

Homemade Ice Cream | The Farm PaparazziI scrape my ice cream into my stainless mixing bowl with a lid (from Pampered Chef). I pop it into the freezer to harden and put the other half of the ice cream mixture into the refrigerator. Then I clean up the ice cream freezer bowl, dry it and refreeze it. Once it’s refrozen, I freeze the rest of the ice cream mixture with my ice cream maker and add it to the last batch to harden.

A great treat on a hot, summer day!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,
