Vintage Recipe Thursday: Peppermint Ice Cream Recipe

Peppermint Crush Ice Cream
Welcome back to Vintage Recipe Thursday.  Please link up your Vintage Recipes below.  If you have an extra post from last Thursday, please feel free to link that one too.

If you didn't see my previous post, Blogger was having more problems last week.  I was not able to post on Wednesday or Thursday, and I was finally able to get back into Blogger to post just minutes before Friday. I was also not able to comment on Blogger blogs, so if you haven't seen me around, that's why.  Several of you also e-mailed me to let me know you were unable to comment on my blog during that time.  I appreciate you letting me know.  Thank you.  I don't know how wide-spread the problem was, but several people I follow on Twitter were commenting that they also could not post.  I'm linking early to make sure this post publishes, and does not remain in Blogger's auto-scheduled list which has also been happening, but you're not too late to link even if you see this on Thursday or anytime during the week.

I'm sharing an ice cream recipe again this week.  We have been having extreme temperatures, and eating a lot of ice cream to cool down so it's definitely on my mind.  How about some peppermint ice cream?  Peppermint should be quite refreshing.

I will be sharing this recipe with Sweet Treats Thursday, Full Plate Thursday, Food On Fridays, Fresh Food Friday, Savory SundaySo Sweet Sundays, Sweet Indulgences Sunday, Weekend Showoff Party, Party Mindie-Style Weekends, Mingle Monday, Creative Creations Tuesday, Tea Party Tuesday, Tea Time Tuesday, Domestically Divine, Made it on Monday (Wed-Sat), Share the Love Vintage Wednesday, These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight Wednesday, Whatever You Want Wednesday.

Peppermint Ice Cream Recipe
2 cups thin cream
Few grains salt
1/3 pound peppermint candy
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pulverize candy. Dissolve in cream. Add vanilla and salt. Pour into freezer.  Freeze.  If desired, food coloring may be added.  4 servings.

  9. Very tasty by the name and by the look. I feel like peppermint itself is so cold or cool but making it an ice cream i guess it will make it cooler.
