How to Make Homemade Ice Cream

When temperatures climb and the daylight hours stretch long into the evening, you can bet the "lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer" are here. And what better way to mark the most relaxing part of the year than to break out the ice cream maker and learn how to make homemade ice cream? Different than store bought varieties, homemade ice cream tends to have a softer consistency. It's also cheaper per serving, allows you the opportunity to use purer ingredients (and leave out preservatives or other additives) and offers great potential for experimenting with flavors and add-ins.
