About the Recipe: This recipe was passed on to me by my mother who got it from her mother, who got it from a friend. It is the best homemade ice cream recipe I have ever tried. It is a family tradition to make homemade ice cream for all special occasions. As a child we used to take turns cranking the ice cream freezer as there weren’t many motorized ones around. We loved doing it!92129JuneJuly2013_Recipe_ChefPhoto
