Wanted - Your Favourite Homemade Icecream Recipes

Found 13th Jul 2010
Hi all, was wondering whether anyone had any favourite homemade icecream recipes they could share?
My neice has just had the wonderful news that she is being allowed to adopt the little girl with Downs Syndrome she has been fostering for over 2 years, and we are throwing a welcome to the family party for her, her fave food is icecream and cookies, so as a special treat thats the theme of the party.
Since I treated myself to an icecream maker when I had coconut icecream cravings earlier in this pregnancy I have been nominated to make the icecream. I know I can google recipes etc, but am really looking for different/personal tried and tested ones iykwim.
Thankyou

I've just made a massive batch of strawberry ice cream, after a fabulous year on the strawberry patch. It's basically equal quantities (numerically) of everything. So, 600g strawberries, pulverised, liquidised or chopped. However you fancy them really, 600g caster sugar (though I've reduced this on occasion when feeling especially good) and 600ml of cream. The original recipe called for double cream, but it came out far too rich for me, so now I use whipping cream, and just whip the pants off it before it goes in. Then I whip the sugar and strawberries into it, and pour it all in the machine. Scrumptious. I've added other stuff to it too, like chocolate shavings, coconut etc, but I always go back to the plain strawberry. Mmmm.

Whats the best ice-cream maker to go for?
Would love to make my own! http://images.paraorkut.com/img/emoticons/images/i/icecream-359.jpg

I bought this one from Argos argos.co.uk/sta…htm

is really easy to use, my friend bought a really expensive one that cost 3 x this one, but it's so fiddly to use and the end product doesn't taste any different

When we got an icecream maker we bought the Ben and Jerrys ice cream book and it is fantastic - a must buy if you have an ice cream maker. Not that expensive either, about £6 I think and the recipes are lovely, they have tips too like with some of the ice creams with lots of double cream you can change it to 50% double cream and 50% whipping cream for a slightly lighter and healthier ice cream - it tastes just as nice too. They have a recipe for an oreo ice cream (like cookies and cream, so a vanilla with cookies really) which sounds perfect for you to make, I can dig it out later if you like and type it up for you.


Edit: £3.97 at Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0894803123/****

Also, a tip is to buy vanilla extract NOT vanilla essence, it is more expensive but so much nicer, it gives a fresher and less chemically taste as it is a natural product, it is a complete must buy. I get it from Lakeland as we have one in town, you can probably buy it from Waitrose, but please buy it, the ice cream will taste SOOOO much better.
