One thing I remember from growing up is the delicious ice cream my Grandfather made. I would help him crush the ice and put ice and salt in while it was freezing in one of these:
So my wife and I got one of these ordered. http://www.whitemountainproducts.com/shoppe.aspx The 6 quart model. Should come next week some time.
Anyone else make ice cream? Have any good recipes to share? Or stories?
