Day 9: Vanilla Ice Cream

My boyfriend bought an ice cream maker at a garage sale a few weeks ago and has been begging me to make ice cream ever since. I finally got around to it this weekend!

Last night I made the mixture and probably picked one of the more complex recipes. I’m sure there is a lot easier ways to make ice cream, but my oh my was this delicious.

I whisked together 3 cups whole milk, 2 cups heavy cream, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and about 1 and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract (since I didn’t have a vanilla bean). Put the combo over medium heat for about 4 minutes, stirred constantly, waiting for the sugar to dissolve and milk mixture to become hot. I poured one cup at a time of the liquid into the 5 egg yolks, throughly whisking. Then put the mix back onto the stove over medium heat, whisking constantly for around 10 minutes.

I stored the mix in the fridge overnight and put in the ice cream maker this morning and churn for about 5 minutes and an hour later was left with some damn good ice cream!!IMG_3237

Heres the recipe:
