I followed Ina Garten's recipe: here is the link if anyone wants to make it to the T: Ina Garten's Vanilla Ice Cream
I made a couple of alterations to suit my needs better, basically less fat as I used 1:1 ratio of cream and milk instead or using just cream: yelids 1 quart
Heavy Cream: 1.5 cups (original recipe says 3 cups)
Milk: 1.5 cups (original recipe excludes this)
Sugar: 2/3 cups
Vanilla Extract: 2 tsp (Original Recipe uses 1 tsp extract and small scraped Vanilla Bean)
Heat everything in a bowl until sugar is dissolved. Cover and chill in a fridge. If you are using ice cream maker, spoon the ingredients into the maker after the mixture has well chilled and follow the manufactures instructions.
Last week, my ice cream maker was yet to be delivered. So, I followed the traditional method without a machine. Here is how you make it, if you dont have an ice cream maker; mind you its some work: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2007/07/making-ice-crea-1/
Megha's verdict: "Emmmmm....soooo Yummmmmy".
There is something about homemade ice cream! Though not as creamier as the store bought ones (due to less cream and no-machine), we still managed to lick the bowl clean in under 4 nights!
