Easy Homemade Ice Cream

3 May

This is one of the tastiest, easiest homemade ice cream recipes I know. This one is for vanilla. If you like other flavors, simply substitute your favorite flavor for the tablespoon of vanilla in this recipe. You can also add food coloring for color if you like. I like to crunch up candy bars, cookies and chocolate chips or pureed fruit and mix it in, too, once the ice cream has frozen! Delicious!!!

Basic Recipe:

+ 3/4 cup sugar

+ 2 eggs

+ 4 cups half and half (or 3 cups half and half, 1 cup heavy cream)

+ 1 tablespoon vanilla (or mint, walnut, almond or whatever other flavor you like)

+ 1/8 teaspoon salt

Mix sugar and eggs until well blended and light in color. Blend in cream, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Chill for several hours or overnight until thickened and “ice creamy”. Serve and enjoy! It does melt quickly, so don’t leave it sitting out long.
