Vanilla Ice Cream

 

I recently made vanilla ice cream and it was delicious!!  I wanted to share my recipe with you.   You can now find all my ice cream recipes (eggless recipes and non dairy too) and ice cream making directions here:  http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/makinghomemadeicecream.htm    If I have more recipes to post I will be adding them to that page.   


Vanilla Ice Cream


 


6 eggs
3 cups cane juice crystals
2 T vanilla (only the real stuff)
2 c. whole cream
Whole Goat Milk, as much as needed to fill ice cream maker container (whole cow milk will work too.. :)
1 T arrowroot powder (helps make the ice cream smooth.. but this is optional if you don’t have any) 


In a big mixer (like a Kitchen Aid or Bosch) mix together (with the wire whip) the eggs and cane juice crystals until light and lemony colored. Add vanilla and mix again. Add cream and arrowroot powder (if using). When all of this has mixed together completely pour it into your 1 gallon ice cream maker container. Add whole milk until you reach the "fill line" on your ice cream maker container.  Follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker or click on the above link for general instructions.

  3. Wait, Can you please tell us why you feel confident in making ice cream with raw eggs without any cooking? Everyone hears why you should always cook your eggs, but maybe it's time to hear something about why it's okay to not cook your eggs in some cases.

  4. Crystal, This isnt about ice cream although it looks great. I just wanted to thank you for writng your most recent ebook! I have been reading your blog for years and have learned so much from you! You were kind enough to respond to an email I wrote to you one day when I was in the middle of a "melt down" and that was back when I had , I think, 5 kids. I now also have 8 and was just so happy to see all your years of advice in one place. My oldest daughter is 17 now and my 20 yr old son is dating a girl seriously. I will be buying them their own copies of your book and I will be recommending it to my friends. It is so well done with a "look what I managed to figure out" tone as opposed to a "I know it all and you can too" feel. Once again-thanks so much! Can you tell I am excited? Would love to hear from you if you ever get the time. God bless, Trish perkinsprivy@fairpoint.net

  5. I know this is an old post but I receive your newsletter which linked to your ice cream recipes and I had to share that I tried one of them and we loved it! I made this vanilla recipe but I added one cup of chopped (with food processor) chocolate chips and it was a huge success. I took it to our bible study group and everyone loved it!! I had seen your recipes with chocolate chips but my husband likes just chocolate chip ice cream, not mint or peanut butter, so I just added them to the vanilla and it worked out great. Thank you so much for taking the time to send the newsletter and for ALL of your great posts!
    Blessings,
    Rashel
