Delicious Homework - Homemade Ice Cream

Plain Vanilla Ice Cream

2 c. heavy cream (1 pint)
2 c. light cream (1 pint)
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt

Pour cream directly into cream can. Add sugar, vanilla and salt.

Stir with wooden spoon or spatula until sugar dissolves.
Insert cream can into ice bucket, layer ice and rock salt around cream can. Attach motor (yes, we cheat and have an electric ice cream maker) and process until motor sounds strained.
Scoop ice cream into storage container and put in freezer - work quickly as home made ice cream melts much faster than store bought.
Best part of home made ice cream ... licking the paddle!!!

My favorite literature curriculum for home schooling is Progeny Press. Why? Because from a child's perspective, it's fun! From an educator's perspective, it's not only comprehensive - it's also fun!

Each study guide covers vocabulary (can also supplement spelling curriculum), comprehension questions, analytical study of the genre, biblical applications and FUN projects. OG is currently reading Laura Ingles Wilder's Farmer Boy. She has really had some fun projects. Her most recent was making homemade ice cream - Yeah, I see the drool in the corner of your mouth.
