The 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 refrigerator.
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 and you'll get wonderful results.

In Grandmas Kitchen (Part I)
One of my fondest childhood memories is being in the kitchen with my Hungarian grandmother. I loved watching her chopping vegetables, kneading dough, and leaning over bubbling pots in a kitchen that was always filled with wonderful aromas. I'd always help her after school-shelling peas or beans, scrubbing and peeling vegetables, and when I got older, helping to prepare dinner. My favorite was Friday dinner-we would always have some kind of savory soup followed by a noodle or sweet dish. I was always a sweet tooth and looked forward to egg noodles with eggs or jam, palacsinta (Hungarian crepes eaten with jam, cocoa, nuts or sweet cheese fillings), and, in the late summer, silvas gomboc (plum dumplings) topped with cinnamon sugar breadcrumbs.
