I haven't made that much of it because I thought it always took too long. I finally figured out I wasn't putting enough SALT in with my ice. After listening to my dad about that, I've had several successful tries at homemade ice cream. It's so good and so easy (when you add enough salt. ;) ) I went the easy route with vanilla the first time I made it this summer.
The boys love it!
I've gotten a little more experimental. The last batch I made, I pureed fresh blueberries and we had blueberry ice cream. I bought the ingredients for mint chocolate chip for the next batch. I can already taste that.... Mmmm... Maybe I should make that batch soon!
