Homemade Ice Cream - no cook

This is a family recipe at least 4 generations old. My siblings and my children fondly remember hot summer days, swimming at the lake and taking turns on the old hand-crank ice cream maker. My father liked this recipe because it didn't start with a cooked, custard base. The flavor is incredible, the texture, crisp and I remember the brain-numbing cold. My arms are not so strong these days and electric makers are certainly quick and convenient but the delight of my memories are so tied to the shared labor, the sweet summer smells and the melting salt that I cannot imagine giving that up for the sake of convenience.
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract

Blend ingredients in blender. Pour into freezer canister. Fill canister with milk to the "fill" line. Freeze in Ice Cream Freezer until hard.
