Vanilla ice cream

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 ¼ cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Preparations

      step 1

      Stir sugar, cream, and milk into a saucepan over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Heat just until mix is hot and a small ring of foam appears around the edge.

      step 2

      Transfer cream mixture to a pourable container such as a large measuring cup. Stir in vanilla extract and chill mix thoroughly, at least 2 hours. (Overnight is best.)

      step 3

      Pour cold ice cream mix into an ice cream maker, turn on the machine, and churn according to manufacturer's directions, 20 to 25 minutes.

      step 4

      When ice cream is softly frozen, serve immediately or place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the ice cream and place in freezer to ripen, 2 to 3 hours.
