RECIPE: Homemade Ice Cream (Without the machine!)

I told you about the many different recipes and uses for unflavored gelatin?  Well, we made the marshmallows (and they were divine!).  

Now we're trying our hand at the Philadephia Vanilla Ice Cream.  

Here's what you need:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold milk
1-3/4 cup scalded milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 pint light cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a 8x8 casserole dish, soften the gelatin in cold milk.  Scald the milk, remove from heat and add sugar, stirring until dissolved.  Combine everything together into the 8x8 casserole dish and stir well.  Place in the freezer.  When the mixture has frozen about 1" from the edge, use a fork and mix and beat until smooth.  Return to the freezer and freeze overnight or until solid.  

I don't own an ice cream machine, so I'm glad we can make this recipe without one.  

Kevin's only complaint?  No chocolate syrup!  But other than that, it was delicious.  If you've been picking up on the Knox Gelatin moneymaker at Publix, then you probably have a huge stockpile of these in your pantry.

Looks just like the real stuff!! And I'm a li'l jealous of your marked down milk :P I always look at the organic milk section but never see the milk marked down :( That's really cheap for milk!

(My verification word: pluorpel)

Girl, let me tell you - I check it out too and learned Monday mornings are the best days to get the marked down milk.

And what kind of word is that?!

You're amazing! Look at you, I saw that discounted milk label. It's not enough that you mix it up daily in the kitchen, but you put forth the effort to coupon and budget your food $. I so admire you. That looks yummo.

Thanks Jessica, you're so sweet! Some days I feel like a complete mess but one thing I try very hard to do is stay in the budget for our food. Couponing is something I HAD to learn (I wrote about it on the blog about why we use coupons). I'm still learning and it's great to have friends who also coupon and we call and let each other know about the deals we find.

That looks delicious, bookmarking now!

Too funny! I was just reading an old cookbook from the 60's today, and I was reading about sherbets made in the freezer with unflavored gelatin. They didn't use machines either, and I don't have one, either! So, I was rather excited to find these! Many sherbets call for alcohol to help them keep from being too icy, and I was rather glad to see these not have alcohol in them (although one had a whipped egg white, which was interesting).

Homemade ice cream sounds great; yours looks wonderful!

This is a new recipe to me! I am going to check out your marshmallow recipe too...I have been wanting to try and make them. Thanks for sharing these great ideas!

Allison said...

Yum, even I could make this!

This looks really good. I'm bookmarking this for later on. We've had snow on the ground for so long that I can't even think about ice cream right now:) Have a great week. Come join me for Crock Pot Wednesday whenever you can.
