The A to Z Challenge takes us on a journey through the month of April. We write Monday through Saturday and take Sunday off. Hence, 26 days and 26 letters of the alphabet. Come in and see what snippet I'm sharing with you today.
Who doesn't love ice cream. And there is something special about home-made ice cream. I don't remember ever having home-made ice cream when I was a kid. But when I met Richard it was one of his specialties. We first had a hand cranked ice cream maker. Then later on he purchased an electric ice cream maker. I still have it out in the garage. And I helped him make it often enough that I am sure I can replicate that same wonderful delicacy.
Here is Richard's Recipe:
4 cups of sugar
1 pint whipping cream
1 pint Half & Half
4 Tsps. vanilla
Frozen strawberries or peaches
(we liked strawberry best)
He mixed this all together and poured it into the container, put the paddle in the middle,filled it to the top with milk, and slipped that container into the big wooden
ice cream freezer. Down the sides he poured ice cream salt and ice. The lid went on top, everything covered with a quilt, and the machine turned on. Soon we had the best tasting soft-serve ice cream you ever sunk a spoon into.
Richard carried a copy of this recipe in his billfold. In case he ever needed to stop at the store and bring the ingredients home. Along with his recipe for Taco Salad. I have them both, quite faded, handwritten in pencil. Valuable treasures.
