Ice cream has been a favorite treat for generations. The original recipes were originally made without additional flavorings because the sweetened cream was considered tasty enough.
There are many recipes for making homemade ice cream, sorbets and other ices. Most require simple ingredients like milk, cream, eggs, water and sugar only. Then you can add whatever flavorings you want. Making your own ice cream at home is easy, wholesome, and delicious. Once you've tasted the flavor of your own ice cream you'll never be tempted by the more expensive, commercial iced deserts with stabilizers, chemicals and artificial additives. There are a number of recipe books available to help you choose the ingredients you will use in your ice cream mix. Most mixes are thickened with eggs slowly stirred over a double boiler and chilled overnight before whipping in the special refrigerated bowl of an ice cream maker.
Here are some videos to help you make ice cream at home. (If you have plenty of time, energy and a lot of ice to keep your mixing process chilled, you can copy the process below and make ice cream without the help of an ice-cream maker.)
