July is National Ice Cream Month!!

It's also time for the 2nd Annual Ice Cream Roundup, right here at Joy Of Desserts, on Friday, July 31, 2009! It was very popular last year, and I'm looking forward to even more great recipes from all of you. Jump to the Ice Cream Roundup Homepage for all the details. I'm starting off with a delicious Maple Coffee Ice Cream Recipe for this week's Vintage Recipe Thursday.

It's a flavor not commonly found in a carton and well-worth making. Children especially love to make their own ice cream, so give them that extra pleasure during their summer vacation. :-)

You don't need an expensive ice cream machine to make any ice cream either. All you need is a freezer. Just put your ice cream liquid in a freezer-safe container, (even a plastic freezer baggie will do) and put it in the freezer. Every 1/2 hour to 1 hour, take it out to scrape the frozen inner sides of the container and stir into the rest of the cream mixture. Put back into the freezer and repeat as needed. It will take about 3-4 hours to get firm.

Maple Coffee Ice Cream
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup coffee
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup evaporated milk, stiffly whipped

Combine coffee, syrup, and salt. Cook over hot water 5 minutes. Remove from fire. Pour over slightly beaten eggs, stirring constantly. Cook until mixture coats a spoon. Cool. Pour into ice cream freezer (maker) or into tray of mechanical refrigerator. Partially freeze. Carefully fold in stiffly whipped evaporated milk. Continue freezing until firm. 8 servings. Mrs. R.
