Okay, I know we're in fall and I should be past all the ice cream stuff. However, just bought a new ice cream freezer on clearance and the kids are making me churn ice cream again--no excuses! I like very simple recipes that use ingredients I have in the house. I don't normally have whipping cream or cream of any type, so I just stick with regular milk and canned evaporated milk. I add butter to the custard to compensate for this and it works out great. Enjoy!
