Spring Hollow Farm's Vanilla Custard Ice Cream

Millie Johnson


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 !

How to Make Spring Hollow Farm's Vanilla Custard Ice Cream


  1. Add everything to a large pot and stir very well with a whisk. Turn heat onto medium and heat almost to a boil.
  2. Strain through a fine mesh strainer then cool mixture. Now put into ice cream maker, lock it down and pack ice and ice cream salt around the outside. Run ice cream maker till it stops. (20-30 min. or longer) Serve right away or put into container and freeze.
  3. ** 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)
  4. ** If using regular milk, you may want to reduce amount of milk to 5 cups, and add in 1 1/2 cups heavy cream.
