My son has been having a friend over a few nights this week for a sleepover, so I decided to make some homemade ice cream & let them make sundaes. I tried a new recipe & it was really good. It was one I had cut out of the newspaper long ago. Here it is!
Ingredients: 3 tbs cornstarch 6 cups whole milk 2 2/3 cups sugar 4 eggs 3/4 tsp salt 1 12-oz can evaporated milk 1 pint whipping cream 3 1/2 tbs pure vanilla extract Directions: Mix cornstarch with 1/2 cup milk. Add 1 1/2 cups milk and cook in double boiler or large pot until thick and smooth, beating constantly to avoid lumps.
Blend sugar, eggs, salt and evaporated milk with electric mixer. Add whipping cream, remaining milk and vanilla extract. Pour into freezer and crank.
I like to make my ice cream either early in the morning or the day before, that way it's not as soft. Enjoy!

I don't want to be a tightwad or a spendthrift. I want to be smart. I want to celebrate life, to surround myself with beauty, and to be content in whatever state I am in. I want to manage my finances, to organize my routine, and to use my possessions wisely. I want to budget resources and time, to help others, and to bring glory to God. --- by Cynthia Yates
