This new machine should be added to you kitchen essentials, and it will eliminate the need or even the desire for store bought ice cream unless it's HD Caramel cone which I will learn how to make. My store of choice Target, yet another shameless plug but I hope they are paying attention; I want that book/ appliance deal ' but anyway. The Ice Cream Maker ranging from $ 29.99 - $ 99.99, the cheaper of the two works just as well. With this machine I will teach you how to make ice creams, sorbets and gelato's in all sorts of flavors that will keep your palate happy and your mind stimulated that you will begin to play and create your own flavors to suite your taste.
The first of many recipes will be a not so basic Vanilla Caramel Ice Cream
2 cups Heavy Cream
1 cup Whole Milk
3/4 cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 vanilla beans split length wise or 1 Tblspn vanilla extract
1/4 cup Vanilla caramel Coffee creamer
2 large eggs
Add cream, milk, sugar, coffee creamer, salt and vanilla bean into a pot bring mixture to a light boil. In separate bowl crack both eggs and Wisk. add cream mixture slowly while wisking. Return mixture back to the pot and put on the stove at a moderate temperature and warm till mixture begins to thicken. Stir mixture so it doesn't stick to the bottom or burn. When Mixture begins to thicken pull from the stove and strain mixture. Mix makes about 1 quart of liquid, to chill mixture put into an ice bath and stir occasionally till cold.
Mixture can also be cooled down by placing in refrigerator without a top overnight. Mix must be cold before placing into the ice cream making. Please read the instructions on the maker you purchase some directions are different about the bowl that houses the maker some must be frozen overnight..
Mixture can be kept refrigerated up to 24 hours prior to mixing. From there follow the directions on the mixer and just like that you have some delicious homemade ice cream that everyone of your guest will enjoy.
