So I mentioned that I received the KitchenAid ice cream attachment for Christmas. Well, now that we are finally settled somewhere with a badass kitchen/prep area I decided to give it a shot.
I love homemade ice cream. Love, love, love it. But I’ve never really made it at home myself. My dad had one of those old school wooden ice cream makers that required salt and what felt like (as a kid) unreasonable amounts of time. So I was a little intimidated and kind of dreading my first batch.
Well…I was worried for nothing, it was great! Last night I found a recipe that looked good (a basic vanilla base) and got to work creating the batter. Basically it involves using milk, cream and sugar along with egg yolks. Whisking, heating, stirring…and then refrigerating over night. I did that last night before bed.
The batter is supposed to cool down before it gets refrigerated so I used an ice bath to expedite the process so I could get my beauty rest. When I woke up this morning I was ready for phase 2.
