A friend of mine gave me an ice cream recipe a few years ago. I have since tweaked that recipe and use our farm fresh goat milk as well. You can use whole cow milk, but I would add a cup or two of heavy cream with it. I use this same base making strawberry ice cream, just adding the macerated strawberries to it before churning. (or any fruit really) This ice cream is always a hit at get togethers ! I like to serve it with a homemade hot fudge sauce. Nothing says summer like a homemade Hot Fudge Sunday... made totally from scratch !

    ** Sometimes I will make up the ice cream mix the day before or morning of, the day to be used. *** The cooler the mixture, the faster it will make ice cream. *** In the pictures I am making a triple batch. (hence the 3 jars, lol)
