Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
If you were following on my facebook page the other day, you saw that Jenn was saying it was just SOOOO Hot that she wanted some "home-made" ice cream.
In other words ...... Mom could you make ice cream please please pretty please - oh and could it be Mint Chocolate Chip? Now when you make your own at home it doesn't come in those "containers" that always seem to either crush/leak/rip/ or leave enough air inside to make ice crystals on the top. When I make my own, I put it in a nice Tupperware container (I use a 9 cup container) and put a piece of plastic wrap on top before sealing. Works great every time.
As you can see, she didn't wait for it to go from "soft serve" to "ripened" ....... but it still tasted really good - yes I had a little taste too. Next time I have to put a little green food coloring in to tint it for the mint.
I'm not sure which will be the next kind we make - but I'm sure we will make more before the weekend is over - but I have a great book for ice cream and frozen yogurt ideas/recipes.
