Ice cream on demand.
My mom gave us her Donvier ice cream maker that
she no longer uses. We downloaded the instructions
along with several recipes on line, purchased some
heavy cream and had our first attempt last night.
We selected the no cook recipe which requires
eggs, sugar, cream, vanilla and milk.
No electricity is needed but you have to freeze the
inner container for at least 7 hours. We kept our in the deep freeze.
Don't touch the frozen inner container with wet hands.
Mix the eggs and sugar and add the remaining ingredients.
You give it a few quick turns at first and then turn every few
minutes for about 15-20 minutes.
We found it was a bit milky at first so we let it sit longer.
The sides were frozen pretty hard, the middle similar to
fresh churned homemade but a little runnier.
It was still good to me, I don't like thick ice cream,
in fact I favor soft serve so homemade ice cream is the
best on the first day for me.
I froze the remaining ice cream for later.
I would recommend the PINT recipe, we had too much
with the full recipe. Maybe we had too much in the container
which is why it took longer.
All in all it was easy and quick plus does not need electric
other than to freeze the inner container.
