Homemade Country Vanilla Ice Cream
Nearly everytime we visit my in-laws, grandpa has the kids help him make homemade ice cream. It’s kind of their thing to do together. Most ice cream makers these days have an electric feature, but grandpa still has the kids do a little old fashion cranking, just for the experience. When they get tired, they use the electric feature. It is a fun tradition for grandpa and the kids, and the results are always tasty. This Homemade Country Vanilla Ice Cream recipe is pretty simply, and very tasty. You could easily mix your own add-ins in, and change it up each time. I love the creaminess of this vanilla ice cream – Mmmm
