In honor of the 4th of July...and also just because I want to share...here's a delicious homemade ice cream that's different than the normal vanilla. This is a recipe that's been in our family for years. It's from my husband's aunt and is a family favorite. The original recipe called for just 2 cups of cream and whole milk instead of half & half...but I like a creamier texture as opposed to an icy one. I also used just 2 cups of sugar and that gave the ice cream a slightly tart flavor so if you want yours sweeter, just add an extra cup of sugar. However you decide to make it...just make it!! You won't regret it!!
