Homemade ICE CREAM in the TRAILER!

We can't find the family's favorite brand of ice cream in town - the one with three or four ingredients, instead of a list three inches long.  My ice cream (non-dairy) is EXPENSIVE. Mom G has been talking about home-made ice cream. She gave us her ice cream maker - never used - and it was RUSTED.  We kept thinking about it and finally bought an ice cream maker on clearance at Walmart on Friday.
 Yes, three (or four if you use some light cream too) ingredients: cream, honey, vanilla.  I place out everyone's favorite add ins and they are happy. Mmmm......milk and honey.....can you imagine a land flowing with ice cream????? I used to make ice cream every Saturday morning in preparation for Sunday night. We quit doing it in Japan as the ice cream maker didn't work well with the electricity....and we never got back into the habit - until now.
8 C of 1/2 and 1/2

4 C of heavy cream (supposed to be 6 and 6)
 Not sure what happened to the photo of 1 1/2 C honey
1 - 2 T of Vanilla
 Lots of ice and rock salt

30 - 40 minutes later - glorious ICE CREAM! 

Fun to have Krista here to join us.....
 Next, I tried it with coconut milk. I couldn't find coconut cream so used coconut milk coffee creamer - it worked - but I've ordered some cans of coconut cream for the next batch. I'll make way less, too. 

It worked - and it's much cheaper than the non-dairy I'm finding in town.

sounds good. we might even get down your way eventually to try u'r ice-cream etc. Dad is getting thyroid checked. Good grief who ever thot it would be 3 trips in the process. BET it will be in tip-top shape. I'm happy to have found time to just sit here in the waiting room and have time to check things out online. :) love/prayers -- mom t.

Glad you are snatching moments of relaxation, Mom.
