Let’s Get Started

To make this delightful treat, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups of sugar (pure cane sugar or granulated sugar)
  • 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 14 ounces (1 can) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 24 ounces (2 cans) of evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Whole milk (or half-and-half for a creamier texture)

The Egg Dilemma

Before we begin, let’s address the concern about using raw eggs. If you’re worried, you have two options: use pasteurized eggs or heat the eggs and evaporated milk to 160 degrees Fahrenheit and cool them before mixing. However, my family has always used regular eggs, and we’ve never had any issues.

Mixing it Up

Start by creaming the eggs and sugar together using a mixer. Beat the 6 large eggs and add 1 1/4 cups of sugar. Mix until well combined. Then, add 4 teaspoons of vanilla extract and mix again. Next, include 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk, ensuring you scrape out every last bit of sweetness from the can. Give it a good mix. Now, add both cans (24 ounces) of evaporated milk and a dash of salt. Mix everything together until fully combined.

Freezing Time

Pour the mixture into your ice cream canister, making sure to scrape the bowl to get every drop. Fill the canister about 3/4 of the way up with the mixture. Then, fill the remaining space with whole milk (or half-and-half if you prefer a creamier texture). Leave some room at the top for expansion during freezing.

Now, it’s time to freeze your ice cream. Place the canister in the ice cream maker, secure the lid, and attach the motor. If your ice cream maker has a latch, make sure to fasten it in place.

Pro tip: Before starting, ensure you have enough rock salt, which is vital for freezing the ice cream. You can get it at hardware or feed stores in large, affordable bags.

You’ll need to layer the ice and rock salt in the ice cream maker. As the ice melts, keep adding more ice and a little rock salt. Continue layering until your machine stops running. This signifies that your ice cream is frozen.

Time for a Scoop!

Once your machine stops running, unplug it immediately. If you’re not ready to indulge, you can cover the canister with a towel and let it sit or transfer it to the freezer for further freezing.

Carefully remove the lid, making sure to wipe off any salt residue. Oh, the anticipation! You’ll be greeted by a creamy, soft-serve ice cream, ready to be scooped and enjoyed.

Bonus: For extra flavor, try topping your vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries. It’s a match made in dessert heaven!

Now that you have the scoop on making the perfect homemade vanilla ice cream, it’s time to grab a spoon and savor every bite of this delightful treat. Enjoy!
