Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream


While the official start to summer may not be until the end of June, this humid 90-degree weather has made it feel just like summer.  I decided to start the season off with a quintessential warm weather treat, my Papa’s old fashioned vanilla ice cream.

Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream
Makes 4 quarts
Ingredients
• 2 ¼ cups sugar
• ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• ½ teaspoon salt
• 5 cups whole milk
• 4 eggs, beaten
• 4 cups heavy whipping cream
• 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
Directions
1. Combine sugar, flour and salt in a saucepan, and gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat (about 15 minutes) or until thickened, stirring constantly.
2. Gradually (you don’t want to cook the eggs) stir about 1 cup of hot mixture into the beaten eggs. Add egg mixture to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly and cooking for 1 minute.
3. Remove from heat, pour mixture into a new bowl, and place bowl into a larger bowl that has been filled with ice water. Once the mixture bowl has cooled, place it in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
4. Combine heavy whipping cream and vanilla in a large bowl, add chilled mixture stirring with a wire whisk to combine. Freeze as directed on your ice cream maker.
