If you don’t already own an ice cream maker…I think it is worth it to go out and buy one (could be a good father’s day gift!). The difference between store-bought and homemade ice cream is unbelievable.
And with the machines for sale these days there is no ice, rock salt, or cranking necessary. You can spend between $30 and $40, push one button, and within 15 – 20 minutes enjoy the best ice cream you will ever have. Not to mention that when you make it yourself you can also control the ingredients. I recently bought the pictured Cuisinart Automatic Ice Cream Maker for a little more than $40 on Amazon.
The first batch I made (before our 100-day pledge) included only half as much sugar as they called for and it still tasted fabulous. While on our 100-day pledge I make this recipe below (which uses maple syrup instead of sugar) and we do not feel like we are missing a thing. Actually we are probably better off than those still eating ice cream out of a box – please trust me when I tell you this is SOOO good!
