Best $5 I've spent in a long time.
Mr H. has been somewhat interested in getting an ice cream maker for a few years, ever since he bought one for his sister for her birthday. They are so pricey at the store I've been keeping an eye out at the thrift store and look what the thrifting fairies brought me!
I'm guessing it's 20 years old but it had clearly never been taken out of the box! It makes TWO flavors at a time, one quart each. Just the perfect amount for our family. I gave it to Mr. H and Biscuit as an early Valentine's Day present and they were out to door to the store for cream within the hour.
We were eating it less than an hour after that (it really is lickety split).
I made orange ice cream using basic vanilla with the addition of OJ concentrate and some fresh orange zest. Mr. H (predictably) made chocolate chocolate chip with Hershey syrup and chopped milk chocolate chips. Mine was better ;)
And, the best part, the leftovers seem to be staying soft in the freezer (rather than turning into a homemade ice cream brick as I am used to).
Next up: strawberry, lemon, coffee and peanut butter ice cream. Thanks for the ice cream inspiration, Adventures in SF.
