Hello, friends!  One of my favorite things about summer is ice cream.  I can't seem to get enough of it -- especially the homemade variety.  One of the things I loved about visiting my grandparents as a child was helping grandpa make raspberry ice cream with the raspberries we picked in the garden.  It was heavenly.  So, when I spotted an old fashioned ice cream maker at the thrift store a while back I HAD to buy it.  I don't have a raspberry patch in my yard, but there was a recipe for Old Fashioned Butterscotch Ice Cream in the instruction manual of my old school ice cream maker that is equally delicious!

This recipe is indeed old fashioned -- you cook the ice cream mixture before freezing it and it's probably a million bazillion calories, what with its 4 cups of heavy cream, but it is completely delightful.  There's just something about adding ice and rock salt and waiting for the machine to stop spinning with giddy anticipation that brings out the child in me.  And you know I licked that beater thingy inside once it was finished! {Yeah, I know we needed more ice in there.  My new fridge has a tiny little ice container so my husband was dispatched to buy a couple more bags for me.}

You might think that my teenagers would be cleaner when they eat, but you'd be wrong.  Especially with homemade ice cream sundaes.  First, because of the summer heat, the ice cream melts pretty quickly.  Second, my boys dive in face first -- no spoons required -- and get messier than a bunch of toddlers.  Thank goodness I picked up some Wet-Nap hand wipes when I was at Walmart the other day!  As soon as I put the bottle of hot fudge in my cart, I knew I needed to head over to the napkin aisle and pick up a Wet-Nap container, too.  This is not my first rodeo, folks.

 Old Fashioned Butterscotch Ice Cream

2 C. milk 

1 C. brown sugar 

2 Tbsp. butter

1/4 tsp. salt

4 C. cream

4 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Scald milk by heating just to the boiling point.  {Here's a helpful video if you don't know what that means.} 

Cook sugar and butter together in a small saucepan.  Boil it for one minute, stirring constantly, and then add to hot milk along with the salt. Stir until both are thoroughly dissolved.

Add the cream and allow to cool.

Stir in vanilla extract then freeze in your ice cream maker, following manufacturer directions.  

Remove from ice cream maker and store in your kitchen freezer for several hours to finish hardening.

I served ours in waffle bowls, drenched in hot fudge and sprinkled with chopped pecans.  Oh. My. GOODNESS!  It was so yummy!  The ice cream has more of a toffee flavor to me so it pairs perfectly with chocolate and pecans.

If you plan on making this ice cream {and you should!} head to Walmart to take advantage of their everyday low prices, and don't forget to pick up some Wet-Naps while you are there.  Use this coupon from their website while supplies last to save even more.  Wet-Naps are great -- they are softer and stronger than before, and they moisturize with aloe.  We actually use them a lot for picnics and messy dinners like ribs.

Happy Summer, y'all!
