“My Grandmother & Mother made ice cream when I was growing up .All the kids would take a turn churning  ,(we didn't know we were working ,we just wanted the ice cream to be ready !) Now that I'm older (& wiser ) , I have an electric ice cream maker (it also has a hand crank ). Every year my family has a beach trip ,who ever has an ice cream maker makes ice cream & we all enjoy a dish @ the beach. I couldn't remember my Grandmother & Mother's recipe ,so I combined a few recipes I found online ,tasted ,made or omitting some ingredients. I remembered they added can milk & lot's of vanilla ,so that's what I was shooting for. I was so proud when I made it the first time & my Aunt said "this reminds me of Mama's ice cream!". This is a rich & tasty ice cream.”
