Vanilla Ice Cream..Yes, I got an Ice Cream Maker

My sweet boys, and their thoughtful Daddy, got me an ice cream maker for Mother’s Day!  Finally, after all these years of making ice cream in the freezer, I got the ice cream maker I have dreamed of.  It’s nothing fancy.  It makes ice cream the “old fashion way” as my twins like to say. 

If it isn’t connected with a computer,  that’s the category everything falls into.  It’s one that you have to look all over town to find the rock salt because the place it was bought, doesn’t carry it. I love it and picture great times, sitting outside with my boys, waiting for the sweet outcome of the humming machine.  

I had to go to Publix to find rock salt and bought 3 boxes just so I’ll have it should there be a shortage this summer.  It could happen, ya know.   I would have to get the kosher salt out and try, if it did.

I decided to make Vanilla Ice Cream first.  Versatile and goes with whatever you want to top it with.  Besides, vanilla is one of the twins’ favorite flavor and everything I make seems to contain chocolate in some fashion.   Get ready for an explosion of ice cream recipes and anything related.  Oh, I also got a snow cone maker.  

The one is definitely in the “old fashion way” category,  you have to turn the handle on top to make the snow.
