Let's Eat Some Homemade Ice Cream

One of the fondest memories I have of my Grandma Powell in Durham, North Carolina is that she used to make homemade ice cream.  The flavors varied, 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 because 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 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 add 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.
