Coolio.  :)

That's a much healthier version than the ice cream I make, so I'm going to try it, too.  I suppose now that I'm past the big 5-0 I should start watching my fats.  :-\

We could compare notes at a later date. I'm new at this and advice is always welcome. Bonn Appetite.

I understand that an ice cream machine allows you to continue churning it while keeping it cold. To get a smooth ice cream, you need to continually stir it to prevent large ice crystals from forming. You can get the same results by taking it out of a freezer every few minutes, stirring it, and putting it back in. A lot more work, and it will waste a lot of electricity (better to use a chest freezer to minimize waste when opening the door).

b.t.w. I was in Renfrew last Sunday, and stumbled across Tracy's Ice Cream factory on a small dead-end residential street I had never been on before. They have a retail outlet at the front. My first cone of the year was Tin Roof.

The ice cream my aunt had you simply filled it up with the stuff, plugged it in and made room for it in the freezer. It had a flat cord that allowed the freezer door to close. It churned away until the contents stiffened up to a point of resistance that tripped a switch and then it stayed there frozen until dessert time.

I don't churn mine.  I put it all in the blender, whirrrrrrr, turn it into a Tupperware and freeze it.
Easy peasy.
