Sweet, Creamy and Cold

I love ice cream. Pretty much every kind of ice cream.

We recently obtained an ice cream maker – an electric one that mixes it for you. A word to the not-so-wise-like-me’s: Just because it’s electric, doesn’t mean there’s no work involved.

Homemade Ice Cream I decided I wanted to make some ice cream for our scripture group on Thursday night. I made sure I had all the ingredients and then went home and read the directions. I didn’t know I had to COOK it first. I had to heat the sugar, flour(?!), salt and milk in a saucepan until it thickened. Then I had to let it cool for 2 hours before I could mix in the cream and vanilla (I decided to go plain since our topic that night was pioneers; and yes I know that doesn’t make sense – like they really even had plain ice cream). It WAS the pioneer batch though… right?

I let it sit for 2 hours and then had the darn LOUD ice cream maker going during our discussion which was more than obnoxious since it’s so LOUD. In the end, however, it was well worth it. Even more so the next day.

    The cooked stuff is the best. It’s actually considered frozen custard and is richer and tastier – as you found out! yum!!

    I haven’t read your twilight post yet as I haven’t finished the book yet. I know, I know, I’m no die hard….
