For Ice Cream


My apologies to all those Poetry Tuesday fans, but I think you can see we've got a theme going on here and for peace of mind we really need to finish up here.

All this talk about ice cream made me hungry for some, so I found this quick and easy recipe, whipped it up and made it in my automatic ice cream maker.  (This thing sounds a little like a rock tumbler, so I put it in another room and shut the door,  just so it doesn't set my nerves on edge, though the ice cream afterwards does soothe them.)

2 quarts half and half
1/2 pint heavy cream
1 1/2 C white sugar
4 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 pinch salt

(This made twice what I needed for one batch.)

Go crazy adding your own flavorings!

I know this is not the traditional, cooking-method kind of ice cream, but it's really easy and really fast.  (It's also REALLY unhealthy, so make sure you follow up with your choice of Grain of the Month to clear out the fat and cholesterol.)

Hope you have Happy Tuesdays!

-Betty

I wish I had an ice cream maker. I have no idea where I would store it but I would love to have one.
