I made ice cream...without an ice cream maker!! Wooohooo!
Just so you know, I will NEVER do it again without one.Period.ExclamationPoint.Period.
Yes, Sunny Anderson from the Food Network, anyone can make ice cream even without an ice cream maker...
Doesn't mean you should.
And I already know what you're thinking..NO I didn't use milk from my cows(sigh)..gotta make a living here people..I used, buttermilk(mmmmm tangy) and cut up peaches which I pureed with coconut cream..as well as a few other ingredients.
The reason that you should never do this without mechanical help is all in the process. You have to put the ice cream concoction in a plastic bag and then put that into a container filled with ice and salt....
Then you shake...
..while you think about Sunny's smiling face saying "the creaminess depends on how much you shake!!"...
Finally I decided..after 20 minutes and a lot of sweat..that mine was as creamy as I could ever want and put it in two containers in the freezer.
The product was actually delicious!!
Chuck enjoyed the half.spoonful.he.ate.
Don't even go there, mmmk?
I have already looked up Cuisinart ice cream makers--I really want the red one--and have been dreaming up new recipes!
Gonna take some to the cookout tomorrow night and see if anyone without bias taste buds likes it too! I may even take a picture as proof!
