Everyone should experience the making of home made ice cream sometime in their lives! Is it better than what you can purchase? Is it cheaper? The answer to both of these is "NO", but it is the experience of making it that makes it so special.
On Memorial Day I decided that we should make ice cream in our electric ice cream maker. We hadn't used this ice cream maker in quite a long time, so I had Sidney get it out of storage, washed it thoroughly, and made the custard that would go inside.
The grandkids really got into helping by placing the ice into the bucket and sprinkling it with the rock salt. Then they waited....and waited.
