Father's Day was never better for Dad than when us kids cranked the machine for ice cream: old fashioned, home made, hand-cranked vanilla ice cream. He really loved it with big, beautiful strawberries he grew on the farm.

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.

Yumm......
