Let me preface this by saying that my husband really likes our usual homemade icecream recipe, but I find it a little too milky or icy. It's something we have agreed to disagree on over the years. That said, he asked me to make some for Father's Day this year. Having recently made our usual recipe for a family reunion, I decided to try something different. The only thing I changed, and it was an honest mistake, was to use skim milk instead of whole. I didn't cook it as others did. Our icecream maker is a 4 qt maker, and I added all 4 cups of skim milk, which left quite a bit of room (several inches) still at the top. You don't ever want to fill it up all the way, because as the ingredients cool, they expand and need more room. We left the ice cream maker running for over an hour, and needless to say, it was still creamy when we took it out, due to the skim milk. However, the taste was fantastic (we BOTH agreed) and after a night in the freezer, it was absolutely perfect. Not rock hard, as I feared it would be. I will definitely make this again, using whole milk (or at least 2%) instead of skim. I'm not sure if this will replace our usual recipe, because my husband is very attached to his milky/icy variety, but unlike other recipes I've tried, at least this one is a compromise we can both live with!
