I found this recipe in my local paper and found it so easy, quick and adaptable and you don't even have to have an ice cream maker. One tip, I also add 1 teaspoon of glycerin to soften the ice cream. If not leave out of the freezer for 5 minutes or so to soften before serving, I have made lovely rum & raisin and also maple syrup and pecans. All tasting delicious and creamy. Try adding your favourite flavours.
