This weather is going to have me making this SImple Vanilla Bean Ice Cream recipe all summer long. I don’t know about you guys, but it is hot here in Cincinnati, OH. It is almost like the seasons went from winter, a hint of spring, and full on summer. There are a lot of foods that we all seem to love in the summer. One of those foods is ice cream. I can’t wait to take my son to Young’s Jersey Dairy Farm, which is north of Dayton, to pet the farm animals and to have his first scoop of ice cream that is made right there on the farm!
My grandparents would rally all of their kids and grandkids every year and we would take a trip to the farm to enjoy whatever events they had on the farm and their delicious ice cream. Not only was the ice cream full of flavor, but you can taste the love of the ice cream being made on the farm. That is what I tried to accomplish in my Simple Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Recipe; cream, whole milk, sugar, vanilla, and a touch of love.
Look at that flavor!
I know there are a lot of you novice bakers and ice cream makers out there who may not want go through the process of whisking the eggs to build volume and temper the eggs with warmed milk. Some of you don’t even know what it means to temper the eggs. Don’t feel bad. If you are reading this blog post and agree with what I am saying, this Simple Vanilla Bean Ice Cream recipe is perfect for you.
If you are lactose intolerant, read on!!!
I discovered I was lactose intolerant when I was 28. Out of nowhere, I suddenly started getting sick whenever would eat something and I didn’t know what was making me sick. I decided to go to an allergy doctor ( I have no idea what they are called). That is saying a lot for me because I try to avoid specialty doctors if necessary because of the copay. But I was tired of getting nauseous and bloated all the time, so I went.
What do you do when you hear those words?
Well, the doctor was right. It started getting worse. I tried everything you could think of, lactose tablets, warm water and baking soda, and probiotics. Those remedies were hit or miss for me. I was extended the opportunity to try some new lactose tablets called “LactoJoy”. Before I give you guys my honest opinion about this product, let me say I am not getting paid to endorse this product in any way. But this product worked like a charm. The best way to test these tablets. Is to take them while enjoying a bowl of my Simple Vanilla Bean Ice Cream recipe.
