Making ice cream

Remember my Christmas present in May? I've already used the slicer, blender and mixer, so on this hot, muggy day today, I whipped out the ice cream maker.

Here is the recipe I used:

Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/4 cup milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt

First, bring milk, vanilla and sugar to a brief boil.

Set aside to cool (or stick in the freezer like I did to hurry it up).

After it is cool, mix in cream and salt. Then pour into the ice cream mixer after it is turned on to setting 1.

Leave on for 20-30 minutes and you'll have ice cream! I would recommend putting in the freezer before serving, but soft ice cream still tastes really good!

At least my husband says so. :)
