Roma Nelson's Homemade Ice Cream

I can't believe I found it after all these years!  I don't know if ya'll remember this, or even if you've had the chance to try it before...but let me tell you it's heaven in a cup!!!  We're in charge of the ice cream for the 4th ('s Utah and being as the 4th is on a Sunday it's technially the 3rd!).  I've been craving homemade ice cream for weeks now and Tara just happened to have an ice cream maker  :)  Now the only problem is deciding on what flavors to make.  (Don't worry Tara, I've got the strawberry covered  *wink)


4 eggs
2 1/4 c sugar
5 c milk
4 c heaving whipping cream
4 1/2 vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
If you're adding fruit - deduct the amount of crushed fruit you add from the amount of milk)

Whip eggs well.  Add sugar to whipped eggs gradually.  Keep whipping till thick.  Continue to beat until very stiff (don't forget to get the edges).  Add remaining ingredients and mix.  Pour into ice cream maker and freeze till done.  (Follow your ice cream maker instructions)

It also makes AMAZING ice cream cookie sandwiches!!!!


  1. Our air condition broke this morning, so we couldn't wait till Saturday to make ice cream and made it today. Strawberry! Mmmm Mmmm Good!!!

  2. Made it with banana's tonight, yum! Emi had to make brownies, because as you know ice is nothing without brownies mixed in.
