Old Fashioned Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Axe1678

This is our favorite homemade ice cream. From the Rival ice cream manual. Be patient while adding the small bit of milk to the eggs. The slower you can add the eggs to the hot mixture the easier it will be to thicken. Time does NOT include 2 hour chilling time.

This is not the correct recipe for making ice cream without an ice cream machine. Instructions and ingredients are completely different. Link needs correction. Please.
