Recipe by SusanRW
This old-time ice cream recipe was actually my great-great-grandmother's recipe. I've tried a lot of different homemade ice cream recipes, but this one always stands out as my family's favorite!

i used half & half rather than whole milk and it's really quite tasty. if you eat it right away, it pretty much tastes like chocolate soft-serve. not sure how it will be after it freezes/hardens. definitely easy enough to make though!
