ABC Wednesday-The Letter I

This week on ABC Wednesday we are talking about the letter I, and the first thing that came to my mind is ICE CREAM!!

Some times when we eat ICE Cream we buy it at the local Ice Cream Parlor. As you can see from this photo my 2 year old grandson is enjoying his favorite flavor.

There are so many flavors of IceCream at the store, we can't always decide which one to buy, so we buy alot.

To me any flavor of ice cream taste good, but my very favorite kind of ice cream is the homemade kind. When I was a kid we had the old fashioned ice cream freezer that you had to crank by hand. Now day of course we use an electric one, but it still turns out really yummy. I thought you might like to try some for your self so here is a recipe for you. Enjoy your Wednesday and be sure and visit The home of ABC Wednesday

Old-Fashioned Homemade Ice Cream
6 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
13-ounce can evaporated milk (1-1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons)
1 gallon whole milk
chipped ice
rock salt
In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add sugar gradually, stirring constantly. Add salt, vanilla and canned milk. Add about a pint of the fresh milk and mix.

Pour mixture into ice cream freezer can. Add enough of the remainder of the milk to fill can to the middle of the top board of dasher. (If the freezer can has a "fill" line on it, fill no higher than that line.)

Assemble the ice cream freezer. Add alternating layers of chipped ice and rock salt to barrel around freezer can. Crank freezer until ice cream begins to freeze (cranking will become harder as ice cream freezes), adding more ice and salt, as needed. When handle becomes difficult-to-impossible to turn, remove turning mechanism, and carefully remove top from freezer can; remove dasher. Replace top. Cover can with more ice and salt. Cover ice with an old towel, allowing ice cream to "cure" for at least 1 hour. If yours is an electric freezer, follow manufacturer's directions, but the curing step is essential.

Makes about 5 quarts of ice cream.

Love it all. It's interesting to see the different brands in your part of the country. Blue Bunny and Edy's and the "Fried ice cream"! Don't have any of those on the west coast, but they sound good!

Yummy choice! I love some good old fashioned homemade ice cream - my grandmother used to make it in the big churn. Great stuff. But almost any ice cream is good ice cream. :)

I like the political correct list you have there.
I see someone who likes icecream, he would be out of luck with my ABC post this week.

All the ice creams look good but you cannot beat good old fashioned homemade vanilla ice cream.

I remember those days when ice cream was 25 cents at the ice cream parlor, but I guess I'm dating myself. :) I've never made homemade ice cream, but it looks like fun and you can make almost any flavor?
