Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

I love garlic but don't have an ice cream maker, nor the courage, to give it a try myself so this one is for the ultimate garlic lover, Aric, and for other brave garlic lovers to try ;-) Gilroy is in California and states it's the 'Garlic Capital of the World'. This is the 1 quart recipe they have available at their annual Garlic Festival.


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 vanilla bean, split in half, and the seeds scraped out and reserved
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 egg yolks


Put milk, garlic, vanilla pod and seeds in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and remove immediately.

In mixing bowl, whisk the cream, sugar and egg yolks until combined. Whisking constantly, slowly strain the hot milk mixture into the egg and sugar mixture.

Return the mixture to the pan and stir continuously over low heat until it thickens slightly, and coats the back of a spoon, about 10-12 minutes. Do not boil!

Pour in a bowl and chill over an ice bath. Pour into ice cream machine and churn until done. Freeze until ready to serve.

My first memories of eating homemade freezer ice cream are on the back porch at Grandma's house. This was in the old days when the hand crank freezer was used. I was just the right size to sit on the freezer and hold it down while someone else did the cranking.
