Dad's Home Made Ice Cream
His 60+ year old recipe is posted but egg beaters can be substituted today for the eggs which are not cooked in the original recipe. We had our own eggs and got milk and heavy cream from a neighbor when we made this years ago.
This recipe makes me think of my Dad's big smile when we opened that machine and began to scoop out the delicious, rich ice cream.
