Recipe: Hope’s Homemade VanillaIce Cream
5 extremely fresh large eggs*
2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup 2% milk
1/8 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
1 quart half-and-half
4-quart or larger Ice cream freezer
2 to 3 (10-pound) bags crushed ice (See Cook’s Tip)
Makes 20 (1/2 cup) servings; or yieldsabout 2 1/2 quarts.
*Although the overall risk of egg contaminationis very small, the risk of foodborne illness from eggs is highestin raw and lightly cooked dishes. Even with the minimal riskfactor, children and the elderly should never eat foods preparedwith raw eggs.
**If you make ice cream often, try makingyour own ice by freezing water in empty milk or orange juice1/2-gallon-sized waxed cardboard cartons, leaving about a 2-inchspace from the top to allow the water to expand as it freezes.When ready to use, a couple of good whacks on the sides of thebox against a hard surface (i.e.; concrete) will shatter theice block inside and it’s ready to use. Four cartons will normallymake enough ice to make ice cream in a 4-quart freezer.
