Food is tied to so many memories. One of my fondest childhood (and adulthood) memories was when my mom made homemade Custard Ice Cream. Every part of it was exciting, from the making of the custard, which she would make extra so we could have cups of custard since making Ice Cream was such a lengthy process. She had the old school hand crank ice cream maker – you know, the one where you had to add ice and salt and take turns cranking in order to turn the custard into ice cream. It was all so eventful and fascination to me. She continued to make it throughout the years and in my early adult years when I still lived at home. The cousins would come over and we would all wait in anticipation for the homemade ice cream, it truly was an event. While she no longer used a hand cranked machine, she would still make extra custard for us to drink!
When I flew the coup and got married, an ice cream maker was at the top of my list. My husband couldn’t understand the need for one. I insisted because not only did I want to make homemade ice cream but I remember the feeling and wonderment of it all and wanted our children to have that as well. If you’ve never had custard ice cream, then you’re in for a treat! Custard Ice cream is made with eggs which give it a rich color and flavor. Using custard powder enhances the golden color and makes it extra creamy. The custard is not only great for just ice cream; you can enjoy it chilled or freeze it to make custard blocks.
Here’s the ice cream maker that I use, I keep the bowl in the freezer so it’s always ready to make ice cream! Not only am I sharing the recipe but also a video!
