2 & 1/2 Cup sugar
6 cups milk
3 cups light cream
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tablespoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
This recipe is handy if you have an old hand-turned ice-cream maker in your garage, attic or basement and have forgotten how to use it;
Beat the eggs until light and fluffy. Add the sugar gradually as you continue to beat. Do this until the mixture thickens.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour the mix into an old handcranked ice cream freezer, pack ice and salt around the sides of the bucket. Then grab the handle and start turning.
As soon as the ice cream thickens so much that you can hardly turn the crank, cover the whole ice cream maker with a heavy layer of newspaper (or equivalent) and let it sit for about 20 minutes.
Then just pull out the bucket, pry off the lid and it's ready to eat!
