Hot Days in May call for Homemade Frozen Custard

You probably didn't know this but Ott, E's hometown had the first Culvers restaurant in Wisconsin.  And Culvers is famous for their frozen custard, which we both enjoy eating.  Well this past spring Ott, E bought me the ice cream maker attachment for my kitchen aid stand mixer, but we've been so busy we haven't been able to try it out. This past weekend we broke it in my making homemade frozen custard in it.  We used a random recipe Ott, E found on the Internet, and it could give Culvers a run for their money.  (just joking)  

Ingredients:  4 c. milk, 4 eggs, 1 1/4 cup sugar, 1/3 cup corn starch, 1/8 tsp. salt, 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, 2 T. Vanilla extract.
Directions: Bring Milk to a boil in a saucepan on the stove.  Combine Sugar, corn starch, salt and egg in a separate bowl.  Gradually add to milk milk.  Return sauce pan to heat and cook stirring mixture until 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  Stir in Condensed milk and vanilla.  Chill for 3 hours in refrigerator.
After the 3 hours we placed the mixture in my ice cream maker attachment and put on the low speed for 30 minutes.  At this point the custard could be eaten or you can place it in the freezer to be eaten at a later time.  We added some candy toppings after we dished up a bowl and enjoyed this frozen treat as the temperatures started to rise outside.

I didn't know they made a ice cream maker attachment. I may have to look into that.

Ditto Ann's comment! Hannah's Cloverbud group (mini-4-H) made ice cream the "shake in a bag style). It was good and one serving is done in five minutes. I'm going to have to get the recipe and post about it!

How is parenthood going? Interested to hear if it's just like you thought it would be, or if a few surprises have popped up along the way. Those always make for fun stories!

Get some sleep when and where you can!
