Home Made Ice Cream Mix

Recipe Information
For use in crank-type ice cream freezer

Tom King

Serves/Makes:About 1/2 gallon

  • 2 cans Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed (not evaporated) milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 quart (950 ml) plus 1 cup (225 ml) half and half (or whole milk)
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) vanilla
  • Mix all ingredients well and pour into ice cream freezer.
  • Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • If you want to add fruit, omit the 1 cup (225 ml) of half-and-half and add about a cup of fruit.
  • Be sure to mash the fruit well before adding as whole pieces of fruit freeze very hard and are unedible.
This recipe has been in our family for over 50 years. I don't know where it originated, but it makes a very rich ice cream. You may substitute whole milk or even 2 percent milk, but the half and half produces a smoothe creamy product.

This rivals the best "premium" ice creams in the grocery stores!
