Schwartz Family Ice Cream Recipe

Pin It

The Schwartz Family Farm Tradition is to have Grandma’s ice cream every evening – even if you have only a very small scoop – while you discuss the blessings and the hard things of the day. Makes 1 gallon.

2 quarts (8 cups) LDF Milk
2 cups LDF Whipping Cream
2 Egg-Land’s Best eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon vanilla
1⅔ cups sugar
½ teaspoon salt

Mix the sugar and flour well in the top of a double boiler pan. Gradually add 1½ cups of the milk (reserving remaining milk) and stir well to mix. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, then add to the milk mixture. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Prevent from boiling. Thicken until it is a thin custard consistency. Remove from heat and let it cool.

When egg mixture is cool, add the vanilla, whipping cream and mix. Pour into ice cream maker canister and then add the remaining milk filling up to 3 inches from the top of the container. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve, and as you enjoy it, share the blessings and challenges of the day around the table.
