Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Nielsen-Massey Classic Vanilla Ice Cream

My family gave me a new 4 quart ice cream maker for Mother’s Day. I had not made my own ice cream in years until they gave me this maker. I used to always use the Junket mixes. Don’t get me wrong the Junket mixes are good but I wanted to try to make some homemade ice cream for our Memorial Day cook out that didn’t involve a mix at all. So I decided to try out a free recipe that I found at World Market. I have been saving the recipe for when I got a new ice cream maker. Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Home Made Ice Cream is so… delish! You and your family will love it! I will never buy store ice cream again! It is so simple and easy to make just as easy as using an ice cream mix but much tastier! You can easily stir in some crushed cookies, mini chocolate chips, fruit, nuts, chopped bits of brownie or whatever flavor you like before or after churning but add before you freeze it for several hours. If you prefer just leave it plain. I highly recommend that you freeze it overnight before serving. Also I highly recommend that you use real vanilla extract not imitation it gives it so much more flavor! You could also use vanilla bean. I took the Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Home Made Ice Cream recipe and tripled it because my ice cream maker makes 4 quarts. You decide how much ice cream you want to make but remember to double or triple if you are making a lot of ice cream.

Take out the paddle, cover with plastic wrap, double rubber band, place the lid back on, and put in the freezer for several hours or better yet overnight before serving

(I tripled all the ingredients to fit into my 4 quart sized ice cream maker.)
