We've been waiting for this day. For a long time. Months ago I got an ice cream maker for $7 at a thrift store. I had already determined that the kids would pass the ice cream making section of their Keepers of the Faith books so I was so excited to find such a good deal.
Then I had to wait because I knew what recipe I wanted to use and it called for maple syrup- which I don't always have on hand (and I like to order it when I place my wheat order since it's cheaper that way). Also, it calls for egg yolks and since they wouldn't be cooked, I wanted to use eggs fresh from a local farm. Well, it all came together today.
