Ice Cream Recipes?

Recommended Posts

Looking for some tested ice cream recipes for an electric ice cream maker that uses a frozen bowl (I have Cuisinart model). Need to make some home made dessert for my kamado dinners! Thanks.

Have used this for several years, makes just the right amount for the Cuisinart ice cream maker.

1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

use the empty sweetened condensed milk can to measure the next 2 ingredients

1 can whipping cream

1 can half and half

2 teaspoons of real vanilla

 

Best I have ever had and easy to remember.

I am a big fan of the egg based custards. I would Google "cooks illustrated ice cream" if I were you. I would give you a link, but I am afraid that would be followed by a spike in my weight and cholesterol...

Trying to take homemade ice cream up a notch or two without adding a lot of calories, and I came across stabilizers and emulsifiers that are commonly used in store bough ice cream. For example, Ben & Jerry’s vanilla contains CARRAGEENAN, GUAR GUM, SODIUM BICARBONATE.

After further research, it looks like guar gum and xanthan gum are easy to obtain and use at home. Both are supposedly “natural”. Anyone experiment by adding either of these into homemade ice cream? I understand just a little bit (1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum for a quart of ice cream) will give homemade ice cream that stretchy, chewy feel.

I found both on Amazon:

Xanthan:

Guar:

I have been using the NYT recipe for the only ice cream base you'll ever need.

That one sounds good, and rich! My base must be a "regular" as opposed to the NYT's "premium" vanilla as mine uses 1 cup heavy cream, 2.25 cups milk and no eggs, where as the NYT recipe is reverse, 2 cups heavy cream, 1 cup milk and 6 yolks.

I decided to order the xanthan gum. Half the stuff in my fridge has xanthan gum so I figured a little more can't hurt. Will post results soon.

Well, to top of a perfectly awful day, a perfectly awful ice cream fail.

 

While I was on the phone this afternoon, the ice cream maker started "walking" itself across the counter. It took a suicide plunge off the kitchen counter. The plastic casing shattered into a million pieces and my kitchen is covered in half-churned ice cream.

 

I salvaged some of it out of the container and put it in the freezer to harden off. I might very well have ice cream and scotch for dinner. It's been that kind of day.

Go for it. Hey... The right Scotch has a smoke element so that counts.

I clicked that I like this when actually I did not like it. They say don't cry over spilt milk, but spilt ice cream is something to cry over.
