Summer is in full swing. We generally make a batch of ice cream on Friday evenings, sometimes Saturdays, depends on who wants what type. This Friday it was Blueberry Ice Cream.

UMTgKMD-_5ycKmRUsCLN5-7Cy-BO-hGnc39_XaGW7DEhAGS9m4djfoXtcSBXKVUhQmKXHXhCYL6y9b1Yt5SCiAOohmBKF_kC.jpg

Base Ice Cream Recipe:
2 Cups Heavy Cream
2 Cups Half N Half
1 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Homemade Vanilla Extract (This may be left out depending on what else is added)

To make it blueberry I added 1 pint of blueberries run through the food processor. I also omitted the vanilla extract on accident.

It was very good. I've been wanting to try blueberry for a long time, much to everyone's dismay. The good news is that it was a big hit! So good. :good2:

Try this recipe some day with your favorite fruit. The marshmallows give it a much creamier texture than most homemade ice cream.

4 cups milk, divided
2 cups miniature marshmallows
4 eggs, well beaten
2½ cups sugar
2 cups half-and-half
1 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups pureed fresh strawberries

Combine 2 cups milk and marshmallows in a heavy saucepan; cook over medium heat until marshmallows dissolve. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot mixture into beaten eggs; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Cook 2 minutes or until temperature reaches 165 degrees.
.
Remove from heat, and add remaining 2 cups milk, sugar, half-and-half, whipping cream, and vanilla. Chill.

Combine strawberries and milk mixture in freezer can of a 5-quart, hand-turned or electric ice cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Let ripen for about 1 hour before serving. Yield: 1gallon.

When we had a dairy cow, my (at that time) 12 year old daughter became an ice cream guru,

We had at least 4 ice cream makers,, after mastering one,, she started using another,,

When we lived off-grid and my daughter was young it was a great treat to make ice cream. It took some advance planning in the summer to have enough ice. In the winter it was much easier as we used snow instead.

we had one of these as a kid too. my dad just loved homemade ice cream when i was a kid. my mother used canned milk in her reciepe back then. and when we got snowed in my dad would walk the mile to our little town back then for some real milk for us kids-and 6 cans of the canned milk so he could make homemade ice cream then.

as far as in the summer-there was a ice shack in the next town-so on picnics my dad would stop in and get 2 chunks of ice-one for the ice cream to make-and one for the soda pop for us kids. man-i loved them picnics back then. pop-ice cream-watermelon-all cooled by them bg chunks of ice.:good2:all stuff now i shouldn't have to eat:nunu:

Such simple things were such a treat back in those days!

We have one of the White Mountain freezers that we bought new, nearly 50 years ago. Haven't used it in quite a while; guess it's time to break it out of the attic!



This ain't it, but it's the same vintage.

Mother in Law made me homemade Strawberry ice cream this past weekend. It was very tasty.

I’d love to get me a country ice cream maker.

Saw one of those at a car show a while back, powered with a JD (at least it was painted green) old hit-and-miss one cylinder engine.

Ours might very well be in the barn loft yet.

Had friends over last night and made two batches. Vanilla and pineapple. The pineapple was ok. I love pineapple, but it didn't translate very well. I was in the minority though, everyone else loved it. It was really good with dark chocolate sauce drizzled over it, but then again, what isn't?

Ice Screamers

Don't know if you have heard of the Ice Screamers;

https://www.icescreamers.com/index.html

It's an organization for Soda Fountain memorabilia collectors. Sharn Jean and I used to collect this stuff, as a reaction to the empty nest syndrome. We traveled some, to other states and around, and we have a lot of glassware, dippers and such that are simply sitting in cabinets and display cases. Some is a bit unusual, if not rare. We have talked about selling it or maybe donating it to a museum some where, but too lazy to dig it all out and inventory it.

We had homemade raspberry ice cream tonight. Very good. Made picking those raspberries totally worth it.

I too want one of these set ups and they can be bought at Lehman's Hardware store in Amish country in Ohio....Holmes county to be exact.....


problem is...you'd have to haul it to all the Farm and antique tractor shows to pay for it......
