    Something else. Very good! I made this recipe three times in two days (with variations) for a large family gathering. The first time it had a grainy texture, so I dissolved the sugar in a 4 tbs of water and the grainy texture was gone. IT WAS FANTASTIC!!!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Something else. I have made this recipe numerous times with numerous alterations and have finally find the one that works for me. I decrease the extract (personal preference). I heat the cream and sugar on the stove until the sugar is dissolved the night before I want to make the ice cream. I chill the mixture all night. I put the ice cream in my ice cream maker for about 25 min. Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours. Take it out and let it soften a little and serve. It was wonderful!! I make it way too often and my chocaholic son never seems to mind that it is vanilla!  -  29 Sep 2008
