Nothing says summer like homemade ice cream.
During summer family gatherings we almost always were cranking a freezer of homemade ice cream. Each turn of the rusty handle brought the sweet goodness of homemade ice cream closer and closer. My arm would ache and my mouth would water as I took my turn at the crank churning up cream and sugar into soft, fluffy ice cream. Summer. done. right.
These days we can all throw up a hallelujah that the ice cream makers now come with a motor that does all the hard work for us! So now we can make delicious homemade ice cream easier than ever! And I promise that you will want to make this Salted Caramel Homemade Ice Cream OFTEN. The flavor is so rich and creamy, you don’t need much to satisfy a sweet tooth!
- 1⅓ cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 cups whole milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 10 ounces salted caramel chips
- Also needed: Ice and ice cream salt
- In medium saucepan combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in whole milk. Whisk over medium heat until mixture begins to simmer. Simmer one minute and remove from heat. In small bowl lightly beat egg yolks and stir egg into milk mixture. Cook and stir over low heat until slightly thickened. Add salted caramel chips and stir until melted. Stir in evaporated milk, whipping cream, and vanilla. Cool to room temperature in fridge. (You can chill up to 24 hours in fridge.) Pour into ice cream canister and freeze as directed. Makes 2 quarts.
- My ice cream freezer took about an hour to freeze completely
When making homemade ice cream the texture straight from the ice cream freezer is more milkshake-like than store-bought ice cream. If you like yours a little firmer and scoopable, spread it into a 9×13 pan and freeze in the freezer for another hour or so. The pan is the perfect depth for getting homemade ice cream to a more scoopable texture, if you prefer that. There is no wrong way to eat this ice cream!!
Although it takes a little bit of effort to stir up the creamy ice cream it is well worth it. The salted caramel ice cream pairs perfectly with an “American as apple pie” slice of Marie Callender’s® Pies topped with cool and delicious Reddi–wip®! I love that Marie Callender’s® Pies are homemade quality, filling and satisfying! I picked up all the ingredients I needed for this delicious triple threat dessert at my local Wal-mart.
I’m telling you, this is an impressive, All-American summer dessert to take to a picnic, barbecue or any family gathering you have this summer! It got a big thumbs up from my extended family while they’ve been hanging out with us at the lake this weekend!
