Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream
Ingredients: Milk, Heavy Whipping Cream, Vanilla, Eggs, Sugar
You will also need an ice cream maker, ice, and rock salt (also called ice cream salt)
Crack 4 eggs into a mixer bowl
Mix until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes)
With a mixer on low add 1 1/2 cups of sugar
and mix until all combined
add a quart of heavy whipping cream (4 cups)...
2 cups of milk...
and 4 teaspoons of vanilla (which is 1 1/3 tablespoons :))
Mix, slowly, until all combined and smooth
Transfer the mixture to the ice cream maker container
Place the container into the bigger container (doesn't mine look like a trashcan :)?)
Insert the mixing blade (or whatever it is called) and the cover
Then you put in a layer of ice
Then a layer of rock salt (I discovered that Kosher salt works as well because I didn't check how much rock salt I had beforehand and I did not have much left)
Continue this until the inner container is all covered
Put the motor on, plug it in and away it goes.
Hopefully your ice cream maker isn't as loud as mine. I really think I need a new one, it took over an hour and it usually takes about 30-45 minutes.
Once complete remover the inner container...
You want to wipe off the lid to get the salt off it so it doesn't fall into the ice cream when you remove the cover.
Oh my goodness, look at that goodness...
Carefully remove the mixer blade thingy
I lost the stopper for the cover of my ice cream container, so I transferred it to another container. The ice cream needs to harden some, so you can either put it back in the container full of ice or just put it in the freezer.
It is very delicious just like this.
Or if you're feeling a little naughty :)...
Go ahead and throw some crushed Oreos on top.
It also is fabulous with cut up peaches, chocolate syrup, caramel, pretty much anything you normally put on ice cream :)
So glad I can pass this tradition on to my children. Micah is glad too :)
Yep, he's a fan :)
*This recipe makes 2 quarts of ice cream. It's very thick, so that's about the max that my 3 quart ice cream maker can handle
1 1/2 cups Sugar
4 cups (1 quart) Heavy Whipping Cream
2 cups Milk
4 teaspoons vanilla
In a mixer bowl beat eggs until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. With the mixer on low slowly add sugar until all combined. Beat for another minute. Add cream, milk and vanilla. Slowly mix together. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and follow makers instructions.
