Untold Secrets To Making Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
Have you ever
wondered if there was a healthful alternative to the sugar and
preservative filled vanilla ice cream you buy in the supermarkets?
If you have or if
you would truly like to try homemade vanilla ice cream then this is for
you. I have a recipe for homemade vanilla ice cream, that will knock
your socks off when you taste it.
The first thing
you need to know is how to make your own 100% healthy and natural
vanilla extract for your homemade vanilla ice cream. Vanilla extract is
a basic ingredient in almost any homemade ice cream, but is essential
in homemade vanilla ice cream.
You might buy the
vanilla extract from a good quality store if you can find an
unadulterated brand. But to make your own you'll need about a quart of
milk, a vanilla bean (available at most health food stores), and a
teaspoon of honey.
You pour the milk
in a saucepan and heat on high while you slice the vanilla bean
lengthwise and in half.
Then put the
halves of the vanilla bean into the milk. Boil for around 15 to 20
minutes, then cook on medium heat for a half hour or until the milk has
a thin sheet of film on top.
Stir the mixture
constantly as it cooks to prevent burning. Cool the extract and freeze
in several small plastic bottles or containers.
This extract will
last you for quite awhile since recipes call for only a few teaspoons
each. You should-if you plan to make the homemade vanilla ice cream
anytime soon- save a half cup of the extract in a container in your
Whenever you want
to make more homemade vanilla ice cream (or any other kind of homemade
ice cream) just get the vanilla extract out of the freezer and thaw in
the refrigerator until a few tablespoons or so are thawed, then
refreeze the rest of the vanilla extract before it completely thaws out.
Now I'll give you
my homemade vanilla ice cream recipe, follow the instructions carefully
