"Very good flavor, but it not very smooth... a little "grainy" in texture from ice crystals. It could have been that my ice cream freezer froze it too fast, or not fast enough. I will have to try it a couple more times varying the amount of salt added to the ice in the outside tub."
"yum yum yummie...fabulous ice cream with a great vanilla flavor. The fact the eggs were not "cooked" didnt bother my kids (age 6 & 17 mos) at all. Be sure to look at the eggs you crack for this, and make sure they're not expired and you'll enjoy the greatest flavor, without having to pay 8.00 for a 1/2 gallon!!!!"
"We made this over the weekend. Just delicious. Rich, creamy, strong vanilla flavor. Store-bought ice cream will never come close. We just loved this. Thanks Bev."
"Way to go Bev, This Ice Cream was Wonderful!!! It was quik and simple, And best of all, You didn't have to cook it. I mixed it up the night before and stored it in the freezer can from my ice cream maker. It only took aboud 40 minutes in the ice cream maker and then it was ready. Put it to You this way, It was gone in 60 seconds.... Thanks :)"
"All I can say is WOW. This ice cream makes store-bought pale in comparison. You haven't LIVED until you've tried this homemade recipe. This ice cream is spectacular in sundaes, milkshakes and especially by itself! I can't even fathom there is anything this ice cream go wrong without. Thank you!!!"
"i've made this recipe several times in teh last couple weeks since i came across it. it's very easy, i usually do a 1/2 batch and use all 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk and cream. throw it all in the blender for a minute then into the ice cream maker it goes. no cooking so no waiting for it to cool, and it freezes up pretty quick. thanks for a keeper, i plan to start making other flavors soon. :) UPDATE- this is my go to ice cream recipe. i mix up a full batch and keep it in the fridge (won't all fit in my ice cream maker and it'll keep for about a week) when i make a batch i put it in the blender and add various things for different flavors. add mint extract, a little green food color, and some crushed up chocolate cookies at the end of the freeze cycle for cookies & mint ice cream. skip the mint and you have cookies and cream. add some peanut butter for peanut butter ice cream. a little cocoa you have chocolate (i like it best w/ dutch cocoa). i've added chopped canned peaches for peach ice cream, but that one's good but a little icy. i love this, the flavors are endless and it couldn't be easier!"
"Outstanding ice cream! I did cook the eggs and milk as suggested by one of the reviewers. Due to time constraints I made it one day and served it the next. It was not brick hard like many home made ice creams are after being frozen. DIL claimed it the "best ever" and Sweetie wants to know when I'm making more. I'm anxious to try adding caramel or pecans. Thanks, Bev."
"Absolutely, amazingly delicious!"
"I cut this recipe in half and it was still too much to fit into my machine, but it is now my go-to vanilla recipe. The first time I made it, I added the mini choc. pb cups from Trader Joes, which I won't do again b/c this ice cream is perfect without any additions."
"mmm this is great! I loooove making homemade ice cream and do quite often. I had been using a recipe that called for a ton of cream and less milk, but I like this one better with the less cream and more milk- its really wonderful! I halved the recipe. My husband loved it, and he's picky about ice cream. This would also be great to throw in some oreos or butterfinger while its still in the machine mixing/freezing! It's very creamy but not overly creamy like the other one i used which always left some kind of funny coating on your spoon. This one froze well, and was not hard to scoop out at all! I use raw milk and eggs from a local farm. Love it! thanks!"
"This was amazing! So many memories of my childhood and this is perfect. I could never capture that flavor in store-bought, and my DH thought I was crazy when I told him that they just weren't the same... I made this last night in my new ice cream maker, and he's now a believer! Best vanilla ice cream he's ever had:) Thank you SO much for posting this. It's going to be my go-to vanilla base :)"
"Yummy! Just the right creaminess and vanilla flavor for me. I did cook my eggs first. I mixed the eggs and sugar together, then added the milk and salt. I brought it just to the point where it is starting boil, then took it off the heat and added the cream and vanilla. It took a little while to cool on the counter and in the fridge. I the put it in the ice cream maker and it worked out perfectly!"
"Wow. A great tasting, simple to prepare recipe. I halved the recipe and my 2 qrt freezer made a nice smooth textured ice cream. Yummy!"
"I think that I have found my favorite ice cream recipe! I made it exactly as stated and it really needs to "ripen" in the freezer for a day in my opinion. When it first came out of the ice cream maker, it was not so good and neither one of my kids liked it. I put it in the freezer and the next day, WHOA! it was AWESOME. I had to convince my girls to try it again and they both say it's the best ice cream EVER. Trust me, let it sit in the freezer for a few hours at least. You will see a big difference. Thanks for the recipe, we love it!"
"Very good and very easy. We used half and half instead of whipping cream and it was still good. This is very similar to the recipe my mom still uses. No one ever got sick from her ice cream despite the raw eggs. In fact we are all a little too "healthy" for our own good! Thanks for sharing."
"Wonderful! I made this tonight with my kitchenaid ice cream maker attachment. It took more than one batch to get it all made. But, we won't be buying store bought icecream ANYMORE! Thanks for a easy and wonderful recipe!"
"I made this using my new ( vintage) electric ice cream maker- the salt and ice made a mess but the taste is well worth it-this ice cream is amazingly good-will make again! thanks bev"
"This is very good ice cream. I wanted something sweet one night and this is what was calling my name....lol. I'm so glad I tried it we all loved it. The flavor of this ice cream was so good. I plan on making this again for our family reunion next weekend. Thank you for posting."
"This was my first attempt at making homemade ice cream. It was so easy and it turned out delicious. I used 2% milk for the milk. I've made 2 batches already (some for us, some for company, lol). Recipes like this make you wonder why you ever bought it at the grocery store! Mine came out very smooth (it took about 40 minutes in our maker) and when we froze the leftovers, they were still pliable the next day - meaning it didn't freeze into a solid rock. We will make this over and over. Thanks Bev!"
