Let's Eat Some Homemade Ice Cream

One of the fondest memories of my Grandma Powell in Durham, North Carolina, is that she used to make homemade ice cream.  The flavors vary, but my personal favorites were banana and peach.

I found her recipe this week stuffed in an old cookbook. By golly, I'm going to give this recipe a try because the timing is perfect. After all, it is National Ice Cream Month.  The kids will love it.

Grandma Powell's Homemade Ice Cream

3 or 4 eggs, beaten
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 gallon of sweet milk
Vanilla (she doesn't say the exact amount, so maybe just a tablespoon.)
She writes:  add 1/2 cup of sugar. It's not as sweet after frozen.
Use peaches or bananas (fresh fruit)

She says to mash the fruit and adds a cup of sugar to the fruit mixture.
Mix the fruit with milk/egg mixture, and pour into container.  Freeze.  Unfortunately, she doesn't tell me how long to freeze it, but I would give it several hours. 

I hope you like my Grandma's recipe as much as I did as a child.  This recipe was written during the seventies.
