how to: ice cream

Byron was gifted a fantastic ice cream maker for his birthday from my parents. This was his first attempt. He used the Sweet Cream Base and Orange Cream Dream recipes from the Ben & Jerry's book. 

It was really easy! 
1. beat the eggs
2. add sugar
3. pour in the cream
4. pour in the milk
5. pour in the OJ
6. add vanilla and blend

You then pour the mix into the maker while it is on. 

Don't forget to clean up your mess while you wait!

After only a few minutes the creamy mix begins to thicken. We kind of overfilled the maker which just resulted in more ice cream. 

Here is the finished product! It was really creamy and not too sweet. Next time we will add more orange flavor. I added some caramel syrup and a cherry for fun.
