Becky of Project Domestication chose Burnt Sugar Ice Cream for her TWD pick and I am so excited! I finally have an ice cream maker (Sister in Law's old one)!
So after making 2 batches of the base, I got all my ingredients ready to start, but when I started reading the manual it said I also needed lots of ice and salt to add to my mixer! *sigh! I thought only those old hand crank mixers (like my Dad's) needed salt and ice? lol. So I had to wait later to make it, when I could get them. So once I had them, I set it all up ready to go, and the darn thing wouldn't start! WHAAT? Mr. took it apart and realized the motor had rusted out. Toast. I really didn't want to freeze it by hand. So I jumped on Ebay (knowing I'd have days to wait), then Mr. said Craigslist! Duh! LUCKILY there was 1 in my area for sale! 2 towns over, 1 hour and $20 later, I was freezing my new-to-me ice cream maker bowl.
This is my second time ever making ice cream. My first time was another of Dorie's TWD recipes, but I had to really make it by hand, and it took forever to freeze up, but it was good!
