Every year we make homemade ice cream in our electric ice cream maker. Usually on July 4th and maybe one or two other times during the year.
I remember when I was young taking turns turning that handle on our old hand cranked ice cream maker. I’m sure putting all the work into the process of making it, made it taste even better. Now, it’s quite a find when you can buy them at an antique shop or local flea market. The patina on the old wooden ones are beautiful.
One of my son’s favorites, and now my granddaughter’s is the Banana Split Ice Cream. I’m not sure where my husband found it, but the recipe, stuck between the pages of a recipe book is dated 5/28/03.
Homemade Banana Split Ice Cream
1 box Vanilla Junket
2 cups of sugar (lighter version use 1 cup)
1 can Eagle Brand milk
1 can evaporated milk
1 small jar cherries in syrup
1 small bag of pecans (crushed)
1 can crushed pineapple
2 bananas sliced
1 10 oz. frozen or fresh strawberries
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together, place in ice cream maker, and fill can to the fill line with whole milk. Follow directions on ice cream maker until finished ice cream.
This is another favorite. You can choose any candy bar to add. Milky
Way, Snickers, and Butterfingers are our favorites. We choose one.
Candy Bar Ice Cream
8 Large Bars of your choice of candy
1 large can evaporated milk
1 box Junket
16 oz coffee creamer
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup sugar
You can process the Butterfingers in a food processor to break into pieces. Milkyway, Snickers, and other candy with a soft center should be broken up into small pieces and slightly melted in a microwave or on the stove top.
Add all the ingredients into the ice cream maker, fill to the fill line with whole or 2% milk.
Follow directions on your ice cream maker until finished.
*Junket can be found in the grocery isle with ice cream toppings, and cones.
