Classic Vanilla Ice Cream

With or without the cone, this beloved classic is always a favourite in summer or at any other time of the year. While an ice cream machine can be handy to have for churning and freezing, this method shows how easily you can make your own velvety smooth homemade ice cream using a food processor instead.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup (150 mililiters) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (500 mililiters) half-and-half cream (10%)
  • 1 cup (250 mililiters) whipping cream (35%)

  • 3 Break up ice cream with a spoon and transfer to food processor; puree until smooth. Transfer ice cream into airtight container; return to freezer until firm, 3 to 4 hours (or up to 1 week). If using ice cream machine, freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
