Biggest problem is getting good ice. Ice cubes make coarser ice cream. Hard to get crushed ice anymore. Used lots of salt with the ice. Let sit for 15 to 30 minutes wrapped in towels after the motor shuts off. Yum, yum,
This is pretty much what we do.
We can change the recipe to about any type of liquid to change it up.
orange crush makes a good orange ice cream. Cheerwine, Tahitian treat, yoo-hoo makes a good frosty type ice cream. add any fruit to the above recipe and you have that. Strawberry, peach, pineapple, banana, maraschino cherries gosh this a good one.
Man makes me want some now.
We have a ice cream freezer 4 qt that stays in the camper and we have one of nicer wooden ones 6qt at home.
PS I have been making homemade ice cream since I could turn the handle. sit down there and turn(crank) that handle boy...I can hear my dad now..
