Caramel Ice Cream Recipe

Here's a recipe to help you (and me) beat the heat. I love to make homemade ice cream, and if you haven't tried it, you haven't realized how easy it is. It is much better tasting than most store-bought ice cream and much cheaper too. I love that I get to control the quality of my ingredients and try out all sorts of wonderful flavors I would not be able to buy from a brand. Children particularly love to make their own ice cream, even if they have to crank a handle to get it. They get fascinated looking at it form into a solid.

Link up your vintage recipes below. Any recipe approximately 10 years or older qualifies.  It could be one for your newlywed days, one from your mom, an aunt, a grandmother. It could come from an old cookbook or magazine, and old recipe postcard, etc. Let us know where you got the recipe and follow the basic blogging etiquette good for any linky party:
  1. Leave the link to your post so that everyone can find your recipe even months and years from now;
  2. Link back to your hostesses in your posts since they link to you. It is mutually beneficial;
  3. Enjoy visiting each other, discovering new blogs and making blog friends. This is what linky parties and blogging are all about.
