We All Scream For...

This is my awesome, circa 1982 ice cream maker. Sure, it's not at hands-on as the cranking kind, but it gets the job done. Last Saturday was a busy day at my house. I was at the parade, but Brian and Bruce went on a 70 mile bike ride up in Morgan County. Yep, 70 miles! Needless to say, we were all pretty beat by the end of the day. So, Shannon and Ben came over and we grilled burgers, played a rousing game of Cancun Flash and made ice cream. I really like this recipe- it's light, quick and yummy:Vanilla Ice Cream- makes 4 quarts.
4 eggs
2 1/2 c. white sugar
2 c. heavy cream
2 c. evaporated milk
5 c. whole milk (I just use what I have in the fridge.)
2 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar until stiff. Stir in cream, evaporated milk, whole milk, vanilla and salt until combined. Pour into freezer container of an ice cream maker and freeze.
