Easy ice cream recipes

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?


Here are two refreshing recipes for the summer.  First peppermint ice cream, then a scrumptious cantaloupe sundae.  Both are very easy to prepare.

Peppermint Ice Cream Recipe
2 cups thin cream
few grains of salt
1/2 pound peppermint candy
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

Pulverize candy.  Dissolve in cream.  Add flavoring and salt.  Pour into freezer.  Freeze.  If desired, food coloring may be added.  4 servings.

Cantaloupe Sundae Recipe
1 large cantaloupe
8 maraschino cherries
2 cups ice cream

Cut cantaloupe crosswise in 1-inch slices.  Remove seeds and rind.  Lay each slice on a plate and fill center with ice cream.  Garnish with cherries.  Mrs. C. G. Judy, Burlington, Wash.


  1. Wow!!! Ice cream....I love it. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will surely try this out.

    Take the Ice Cream Personality Test and find out what ice cream flavor are you as per your personality. I have taken the test and have enjoyed a lot. Hope you too will enjoy it. Have Fun!!

  2. I love the idea of the peppermint ice cream. Looks easy. If it is easy I can do it. Thanks

  3. Sound so delicious for a hot day we had here!

  4. Hi Joy -
    Looks like both you and Grampy are thinking about ice cream - and yummy thoughts they are!
    I like the idea of adding a scoop of ice cream to the melon - the creamsicle kind, I think.
