Homemade Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (sans machine)

5/18/12


All this time, I've been sitting here feeling sorry for myself.  Watching you make ice cream with your fancy machines and rubbing it in my face.  (Listen, I know they're relatively inexpensive these days and I could get one, but I'm lazy and like to feel sorry for myself.)

But yesterday, this how-to article changed my life FOREVER.  How to make ice cream without a machine!!  Without one!  It's simple!  And, and, AND, it's the most delicious, creamy, lusciously rich and flavorful ice cream you'll ever have.    


Sure, you're making trips to the freezer every 30 minutes for many, many hours (the article said 2-3 but mine took longer to get to the right consistency) - but on a hot summer day, what's better than practically climbing into your freezer to make ice cream?  

All you need are egg yolks, sugar, whole milk and heavy cream.  Yeah, I know.  I decided to try out this vanilla custard base (using 8 egg yolks instead of 5 shhhhh), and then I added chocolate chips later.  

Below is a vanilla bean infusing in milk and sugar...

An ice cream machine has been on my wish list too. Glad you found a way around it.
