How to make ice cream without an ice cream maker

make ice cream without an ice cream maker 2

I make a lot of ice cream, that is obvious, but have you ever wondered what I do with all of the ice cream I make?  Eat it, you say?  Not all of it, unless I want to gain 50 pounds.  An entire quart of ice cream made every week is too much for just my husband and I, so I give it away.  And I am lucky enough to receive a lot of great feedback and compliments.  Among those accolades, I often here comments such as “I wish I could make ice cream myself, but I don’t have an ice cream maker,” which are followed by my comment, “Yes you can!” as I launch into a discussion of making ice cream.

Everything you need to make ice cream

In two months, it will be a year since I began blogging about ice cream.  The experience has been, well, adventurous.  From creamy ice cream to fruity sorbet and sherbet, I have shared many recipes with my readers.  I have included store and pint reviews and expanded my repertoire of ingredients (rhubarb, anyone?). But one thing I have neglected to share is a list of what you will need to make the perfect scoop.  How could I forget this important information?!

Below is a list of basic ingredients and equipment that you will need to make ice cream (or another scoop).  I hope you will find this list helpful.

Is there anything that I have left off?  Leave a comment and I will add it to the list.
