When I was young, the Fourth of July was the one day a year when I remember my family breaking out the ice cream maker, in all its mysterious glory. We filled the big wooden outer container with ice and rock salt, poured a cream and sugar mixture into the inside container and set it to churning. And, miraculously, we’d end up with a creamy and satisfying vanilla ice cream, with a special homemade taste and texture I’d look forward to year after year.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home proves that homemade ice cream isn’t just for the Fourth of July anymore (although it definitely should be part of your holiday weekend plans). Jeni, the owner of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio, takes us season by season through the freshest and most creative flavor combos imaginable. All recipes are based on Jeni’s four-step process, using home equipment to make amazing, artisan American ice creams. Take a few of her recipes for a test churn: Farmers’ Market Sundae, Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream and Salty Caramel Ice Cream.
