I've never been shy about my love of sugar, and most especially ice cream. I'm very liberal with the imbibing of treats, and I just think that's okay because we are healthy in other ways and treats are a happy part of life.
If you're smart about it, ice cream can be one of the most natural treats you eat. In its purest form, it is often the most delicious. "There is no addictive ingredient, no caffeine or nicotine, yet we remain transfixed...We love the creamy confectionery because it tells us what the ancient Greek philosopher Epicurus told us: that what is pleasureful is what is good and right and healthy." (Nikaela Marie Peters for Kinfolk, Volume Seven)
A few days ago, when, after forgetting to cancel our dairy delivery, we found ourselves with an overabundance of milk, I took to the Internets for ideas of what to do with it all. Many of you had marvelous suggestions; but, of course, what most caught my eye was the discovery that you can make homemade ice cream without an ice cream maker. Apparently I was the only person alive to have not done this in elementary school; but it was a skill I was determined to no longer be without.
It worked perfectly. That is to say, I'm no longer concerned about how I'll get through the rest of the milk in our fridge.
Here's a video of our process; and I'll just apologize because though my iPhone and I have been together for more than two years now, I still can't ever remember which way to hold it when recording video.
