Her SECRET was her old fashioned ice cream recipes that called for fresh heavy cream, and all-natural flavorings.

Grandma knew the importance of using only fresh, basic ingredients in her homemade ice creams. Real cream, fresh eggs, plump juicy fruit, and just enough sugar to sweeten. No additives and no preservatives — just all-natural ingredients for an all-natural taste.

Not only are these homemade ices much better for you, but they are lots more flavorful than any store-bought kind. Why eat an artificial flavor when the pure, natural juice of a fresh peach tastes best?

And you have tons of fresh flavors to choose from! By using fresh, seasonal fruits and common everyday ingredients found in your kitchen, you'll find making your own frozen treats costs less.

Experience Nostalgic Ice Cream Flavors

Every once in a while, stop and enjoy an ice cream cone! —Albert Einstein (1879–1955)

You'll enjoy the nostalgic taste of these traditional frozen desserts. I recall Mom telling me of the fun times in her family when they made homemade strawberry ice cream using fresh-picked berries from their ample garden.

Grandma had an old White Mountain churn with a hand crank, and Mom with her siblings would take turns cranking for what seemed like hours to impatient youngsters, but it was really only minutes.

Once the mixture was frozen, the kids would all draw straws to see who got to lick the dasher. Nothing store-bought could ever beat the taste of the fresh strawberries in Grandma's frozen custards.

After hearing those old stories, I wondered what that old fashioned ice cream would have tasted like. Thanks to these old fashioned ice cream recipes, I can now enjoy them, and you can too. You'll have loads of fun tasting all these delicious flavors.
