Here’s my Mom’s Homemade Ice Cream recipe that is served at almost every family gathering we have on my mom’s side of the family. Creamy and sweet. A family favorite.
Memories of Eating Homemade Ice Cream
When I was a girl, my folks made homemade ice cream almost every weekend. We’d eat it in the winter or summer. It didn’t matter. We had one of those old crank machines, and I would often be called on to sit on the top of it to help hold it down when it got near the end of the freezing time.
We would eat the freshly made ice cream, and my dad would often go back for seconds. Maybe even thirds. Any extra would be stored in little butter containers and frozen. As a treat on Sunday mornings, Dad would let us eat right from those frozen containers. For breakfast. We’d each have our own. I have special memories of all of us gathered around our old wood stove eating ice cream for breakfast. Oh my. Good times.
These days my folks have an electric freezer. It’s still a White Mountain. They swear by them. But you can still go over to their house and most likely find Mom’s Homemade Ice Cream sitting in a tub in the freezer.

Steps on Making Ice Cream

Pour mixture into a 1 1/2 gallon ice-cream freezer and stir in enough milk to bring to three-quarters full. Add the chopped Hershey’s chocolate at the last.
