Note- I like my ice cream stored in the paper freezer cartons. You can buy them at your local grocery store in the deli section where they sell soup.

About

You can make this by hand with ice and salt, but if you have an electric ice cream machine, you’ll be really pleased with how easy this recipe is. This recipe turns out creamy and smooth, every time.
