Custard Ice Cream

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by Lennie

Taken from Favourite Recipes From Old Prince Edward Island Kitchens; the amount of vanilla in the recipe was not specified so I'm guessing one teaspoon.

This does make a nice dessert. It hardened very hard, though, and tended to be crunchy. I couldn't seem to be able to soften it to a creamy texture. It just melted. That said, it tastes very good, and I'm sure is a lot better for the health than the great majority of frozen desserts. Other than adding the vanilla after the mixture had cooled, and straining everything before chilling, I followed the recipe exactly. Thank you for posting it.
