post #1781 of 1821
not really, you make a mixture (got a divine vanilla icecream recipe, must share it when i have time to type it all up) stir it, put it into the freezer for 20 minutes, then go & stir for 5, back in the freezer for 20 & so on till it's nice smooth icecream.
i'm actually just trying it at this moment to use just normal cream, because i fancy cream icecream i'll let you know how that works out.
but, if you can make a basic vanilla sauce you can make vanilla icecream

and you don't get any crystals? I picture you using the old fashioned hand cranked one.

now I think I'll finish off that Ben & Jerry's....

nah,no crystals,i use one of those electric things, erm, you push them down, they have two blades, like, a long stick with two blades on the bottom? i mash up georgies food with that,too.

AH HA!

an immersion blender?

so you're not opposed to the idea of an ice cream maker or technology, you just don't use one

Mistook you for a food snob for sec.

I'll openly admit to being a food snob at times, but I blame that on my husband

Ah... that's what you call it in English? Immersion blender? I have always wondered about that, though they don't seem to have them around everywhere. I call it "staaf mixer". What is the German word?

Oh, and I broke one of those trying to make muffins the other day, they are just not strong enough.

On the topic of breasteeding, I used to have sizeable breasts, but now I no longer even need a bra .

I respectfully disagree. : All the work in making the ice cream is in making the custard part of it. All an ice cream maker does is keeps it cold while it churns. It doesn't actually make it at all!

i am a total snob when it comes to my kdis food. i get very angry with my fil for feeding emily "fruit shoots" claiming "they are all natural" well,it's water with flavouring, doesn't sound so natural to me. & dh backs him up on it. grrrr.

last sunday when i came back from playing with emi i saw dh feeding it to GEORGE!

yeah,it's not so much about the not wanting a machine to do the work, i just sort of feel more like i actually made it when i don't use a machine.
i did give up on making our own butter, though.
seasalt we "made" once. but it's not really worth the effort.

Do we know where you're from originally? Oh, the Netherlands, right? Why did I think you were American when you mentioned an aunt in Holland....?

please set me straight...
