…with my handy dandy Donvier

Homemade ice cream is denser and tends to freeze harder. Oh but it’s better for you! You have the quality control; there is no artificial content or preservatives in homemade ice cream. I have a small Donvier and make my ice cream with 1-1/2 cups of half and half. At the end of the recipe I included the 2 cup, 3 cup and 4 cup versions as well.

1-1/2 cups half and half
3/8 cups icing sugar
3/4 tsp pure vanilla

• Place the freezer bowl in a bag that completely encloses it; make sure there is as little air in the bag as possible.
• Then freeze the freezer bowl for at least 8 hours.
• Mix up the recipe ahead of time and chill it in the fridge.
• When the freezer bowl is ready pour the well chilled ice cream mixture in it.
• Turn the handle a few times and in 20 minutes you have ice cream.
• Scoop the ice cream into a container.
• Seal and transfer container to a freezer.
• Let the ice cream chill for several hours to firm up.
