I do!! We have a Dovier (http://www.amazon.com/Donvier-837409W-1-Quart-Cream-Maker/dp/B00006484E) hand crank machine. I haven't made any in a while but have been thinking how good it would be with the local fresh strawberries that are out now. That chocolate sounds good too, I'll bookmark the recipe and let you know how it turns out, Mark.

I've never made ice cream--do y'all use rock salt or no?

It looked delicious from the pic.

There's no rock salt with my Dovier, Bonnie. I put the machine in the freezer and when the custard (ice cream recipe) is made, take it out, add the custard and hand crank it until it gets to a good consistency. Then you can freeze whatever you don't eat right away. :happydancing:

It's delish! I have a rum raisin recipe that is as good as Haagen Dazs. :w00t:

I bought the kids an ice cream machine and we tried Paula Dean's recipe for vanilla. It turned out ok but not like what my grandmama made when I was a kid. Of course we hand cranked it back then and us cousins each had to take a turn if we wanted to eat some. I'll have to try this chocolate recipe. Yum!

Bonnie, I do use rock salt for my machine.

are you using goat milk, mark? did you guys get a milkin nanny?

we make it with fresh cow milk and it is especially good.





also, about the rock salt, buy solar salt at your local feed store, or even home supply store.... it is a 50 pound bag of rock salt used for water softners instead of the pellets, it is a little dirtier than store bought rock salt but it is about 1/20th the price



also, i would like to have one of these (http://www.lehmans.com/store/Kitchen___The_Home_Dairy___Making_Ice_Cream___Port able_Ice_Cream_Trailer_Literature___L43?Args=) to go around to the farmers markets and stuff, so if anyone wants to chip in let me know!

I have an ice cream maker. It's the newer style where you keep the container in the freezer for several hours and electricity churns the ingredients. I usually make protein shake style ice cream but I might have to try out this recipe.

YUM! I love making homemade ice-cream, we have the old school style hand-crank, I'm thinking those electric ones sound pretty cool though, they work okay? I'll try the recipe and let you know!

We had the electric one that used rock salt, growing up. I used the hand crank type at Scout Camp one summer and my arm nearly fell off. LOL
Now I jsut buy it from the corner store...

It is pure evil to use an ice cream maker for a health shake!

Don't worry Neezar, I just buy it too. And it is best bought from Bruster's when mom can get a double scoop of cheese cake ice cream too. Now if someone has a recipe for that let me know.

I dont eat Icecream...its bad for your health :mellow:

I also live in a climate that only scarcely warrents the tempriture where it can be appreciated.

But if I did eat it...I'd buy it...blue brandy snaps put me off cooking anything irregular :ashamed:

Used to make it a long time ago. I think I bought my brother an ice cream maker 20 years or so ago. I'll have to see if he can dig it out and make some up again.

Time to grab a couple scoops of Breyer's Vanilla Fudge Twirl. Yummmmmm.

Mark, I made it tonight and it was scrumptious!!!:w00t: Plus we have enough left over for several days. I used hershey bars since it called for milk chocolate and I whipped the cream (the recipe wasn't real clear on that part). Anyway, we loved it, thanks for sharing the recipe. They're selling local berries now so I'll look in your link for a strawberry recipe...
