I Scream You Scream We all Scream for The First Day of School and Ice Cream

Today Aug 23 is the first day of school.  Yee Haw!!!

So I thought I would make them a special treat for my kids.  Home made Strawberry Ice Cream!  I turned out great.

I will share my recipe with you just in case you have never made homemade ice cream.  Please correct that if you have not.  Just kidding

Ingredients for a four quart ice cream maker:

Two yes I say Two 16oz of fresh strawberries. cut up and blended
1 pint of half and half
1 quart of heavy whipping cream
2 cups of sugar
1 10 to 12oz can of evaporated milk
2 to 3 tbsp of vanilla

rock salt
2 to 3 bags of ice
Ice cream maker

Add all the ingredients together in the ice cream maker container.   Put the container inside the ice cream maker put the motor on container.  Put ice half way add about 1 cup salt.  Fill up to top with more ice and 1 cup on salt. 

Turn on and let run.  As ice gets low add more ice and salt.  When the motor stops it is done.

Now you could eat now but  is really too soft.  I recommend taking the rack out of the middle and place wax paper of over top and then put the lid back on.  Repack with ice and salt and cover with towels and leave for about 2 hour.   Then serve.  Yumm Yummm!!!!!


And now I don't find things cool in food very often but this look so much like a heart that I had to take its picture.  This is my strawberry.

Happy first day of school.  Yeah moms!
