Here's a really nice bottle of vanilla extract. I received this from my friend, Rene', as a gift. I thought it would be great in ice cream.
Simmering heavy whipping cream, whole milk, and sugar to make some ice cream (not a very lively action shot).
Zach and I made One Pot Chicken Alfredo again a few days ago (see recipe HERE). It's really delicious. I hope it's something Zach will make when he's up at college. The alfredo recipe calls for 1 cup (8 ounces)
of heavy whipping cream, but I've only been able to find cartons which contain 2 cups (16 ounces). This leaves me with leftovers and I don't want to be wasteful. I did a Google search and asked something like "homemade ice cream 1 cup heavy whipping cream."| I found an easy looking recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream and I already had all the necessary ingredients on hand.
In the video for this recipe, the man speaking refers to this ice cream as Philadelphia-style ice cream or American ice cream, because it contains no eggs. He goes on to specify that, if the recipe called for eggs, then it would be French Vanilla ice cream. I tell you, I learn something new every day!
