Ice Cream Maker Manual Recipes For the Ice Cream Making Faint of Heart


When I browse customer reviews of ice cream cookbooks, I inevitably come across ones in which the reviewer will give an excellent cookbook a terrible review for what to me is a completely crazy reason. It seems they were looking for classic, simple American ice cream recipes and were shocked, shocked I tell you, and sometimes even offended, that the book they purchased had lots of “unusual recipes”.  No kidding, I see this all the time. Often with other people commenting in agreement on the review. What is so strange about this is that I think every one of these cookbooks typically does have all the classics, they just have a lot of additional  recipes, reflecting the creativity and talent of the author. The thing I find the most funny about this is, that if you read what these folks consider to be classic American recipes, they are all over the place.  Of course strawberry, chocolate and vanilla are on the list, but after that, its pretty open ended. Ok basil ice cream isn’t going to be on there, but I have seen a couple of people complain about recipes containing egg yolks!  One has to wonder what their sex lives are like!

Anyway, regardless of your feelings about basil ice cream (which I am going to have to post a recipe for now) everyone gets into home ice cream making with their favorite flavors in mind, and usually at least one of the big three is on their short list.  Believe it or not an excellent place for very good versions of you favorites are probably in your ice cream manual. Every ice cream maker comes with one and nobody ever tries the recipes in them. This is a mistake, especially, but not only for, basic flavors. Use the best quality ingredients you can, hell use supermarket brand ingredients for that matter, follow the recipe, and you will make you delicious ice cream and your family will think you are a miracle worker.

Can’t find your manual or want a few other similar recipes to try? Well you have come to the right post.

White Mountain

The White Mountain is an interesting ice cream maker.  It is the last of the old fashioned cedar bucket, rock salt and ice variety which many people think very highly of.  Harold McGee for example, maybe the most respected of current food writers in the US, thinks this style ice cream maker makes the best home ice cream because it gets so cold and freezes the ice cream mix that much faster, reducing ice crystal size.  Not for me, but they are cool and you might enjoy checking them out.
