When our kids were younger and still living at home we would make homemade ice cream on our birthdays. It was quite a big deal, buying the milk, cream, ice, and salt. I do love homemade ice cream. All of our kids now have their own homes so making ice cream in that big canister seldom happens anymore.
I was thrift store shopping about a year ago and I found a countertop ice cream maker. It wasn’t expensive so I bought it. It seemed pretty easy to use, the entire bottom of the maker goes in the freezer and you take it out when you are ready to make ice cream. We’ve never used it even though I had stored the bottom of the maker in my freezer. This past weekend I decided I wanted homemade ice cream and remembering that I had this countertop maker I decided it was a great time to try it out.
