Last year for Christmas I got an ice cream maker. Not just an ordinary ice cream maker --- a super amazing - don't have to pre-chill anything - turns milk into ice cream in 45 minutes - just plug it in and walk away --- kind of ice cream maker. It really is one of my favorite appliances.
All summer long we've been enjoying homemade ice cream with all of our favorite treats. Peach pie, blueberry cobbler, caramel apple tarts and blueberry galette.
Homemade Ice Cream
1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
vanilla bean seeds
Combine all ingredients.
Pour mixture into ice cream freezer and allow to freeze until firm.
I haven't really branched out into others flavors of ice cream beyond vanilla too much. I made one batch of strawberry that was amazing but peach, raspberry, coffee and chocolate are all on my list of flavors that I want to try.
Even with the cooler Fall weather approaching I can't honestly foresee our ice cream consumption fading away any time soon. I think I better find some healthier sherbet recipes so that I don't end up looking like I eat ridiculous amounts of ice cream every day. Will you help a girl out and send me your sherbet or sorbet recipes? I would love to have some fruit based recipes to try.
