Is there anything better in the summer than homemade ice cream? It is a regular old Tuesday. No company coming. No special events. It's just hot as blazes outside and I wanted homemade ice cream! This is the best recipe ever from my mother-in-law. She makes all desserts so good. This is the only one of hers that I can copy and no one knows the difference.
Neva's Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream:
4 fresh eggs (Yes, that is raw eggs. Don't worry about it. You will be fine.)
2 3/4 cup sugar
2 quarts half & half (That is why it's so good!)
4 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Beat eggs with mixer. Add sugar gradually to beaten eggs and continue beating until stiff. Add vanilla & salt.
Pour in 4 quart ice cream freezer. Stir in half & half. If you are not up to the fill line, add enough milk to get there. Freeze.
No need for topping for this one. Good ol' homemade vanilla is best plain, at least around here.
And it appears it is best straight out of the bucket!
