    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 tried this recipe. We stopped the electric ice cream maker after 2 and 1/2 hours. The machines instructions stated 1 to 1 and a half hours. We put the container with the ice cream in the freezer overnight. It was filled with ice crystals. It had a great flavor, but very icey. I don't think I would make it again. I followed the directions. I would not recommend this recipe to anyone.
