Stop Screaming and Make Some Ice Cream Already!

You scream, I scream — wait a sec … why is everyone screaming? That’s not going to get us any closer to a cold creamy bowl of homemade ice cream. Instead of working the old lungs, get out the trusty ice cream maker instead. Because let’s face it: homemade ice cream is just, well, better. You kind of just know that when you’re whipping up a batch, with all those good, fresh ingredients laid out before you: cream, milk, egg yolks, fresh fruit.

 

Yes, making homemade ice cream takes more time than simply scooping out from the store-bought carton in your fridge — but most of that time is in the freezing. As anyone who’s ever done it realizes, the making of the cream itself doesn’t take much more than half an hour. Better yet, once it’s chilled and in your ice cream maker, you get to experience the summertime equivalent of sneaking a bit of cookie dough (though we know that’s a no-no): there’s nothing like a spoonful of half-frozen homemade ice cream before you put it in the freezer.

 

We can’t resist a simple scoop of old-fashioned homemade vanilla bean ice cream, but you don’t have to stop at plain old vanilla. Here we’ve got recipes for the classics, ranging from a rich Butter Pecan Ice Cream to Double (yes, double) Strawberry Ice Cream, and some wilder flavors, too (Blueberry-Cinnamon Swirl Ice Cream, anyone?). You just might be tempted to go crazy and make three or four — then you’ll be the best house on the block when you host a good old-fashioned mid-summer ice cream social!

    The meaning of the phrase “ice cream” varies from one country to another. Phrases such as “frozen custard”, “frozen yogurt”, “sorbet”, “gelato” and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles. In some countries, such as the United States, the phrase “ice cream” applies only to a specific variety, and most governments regulate the commercial use of the various terms according to the relative quantities of the main ingredients.
