Freezer Ice Cream

The earliest forms of ice cream date back to at least the 4th century B.C. The earliest recorded ice cream like dish was attributed to the Roman Emperor Nero, who ordered ice brought down from the mountains to be combined with fruit toppings. There are also records indicating that King Tang of Shang, China had methods for combining milk and ice. It is likely that these methods were then brought back to Europe and variations of this were then made fashionable in French and Italian courts in the form of sorbets, ices, sherberts, and milk ices. This concoction was brought over to the Americas and served to guests by many famous people including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Dolly Madison. Americans were the first to coin the name "ice cream".

This recipe is a simple recipe that is prepared in an ice cream churn to create a delicious ice cream treat. It is a vanilla recipe, so therefore, you can also add peaches, strawberries, blueberries, or various fruits or syrups to create an endless number of lip smacking possibilities. Hope you enjoy!
