Ice Cream

We tried out hand at making home made ice cream...

I was surprised how little sugar was in it. This is the beginning of the custard base (egg yolks and sugar)

Sam scalding the milk. I put the cream in too early but oh well.

Sam cranking away. Instead of ice we used snow since we are in abundance of the white fluffy stuff. When Sam said his arms were getting tired I reminded him of the Big Sycamore.... (Where the Red Fern Grows) suddenly he had the go to keep on cranking! He did have some helpers but mostly the helpers were there for the eating not the cranking!

The Chocolate Ice Cream was a bit softer than soft but it was very yummy.
