Six Threes Ice Cream
Bright, citrus ice cream with just a hint of banana, this is the ultimate creamy cold treat on a hot summer day. This is the ice cream that I remember from summers spent at my grandparent's house. The original recipe makes a huge amount, far too big for the average ice cream machine today.
Six Threes Ice Cream is such an easy recipe to remember; once you make it a couple times, it will be in your memory forever. (3) bananas, (3) oranges, (3) lemons, (3) cups of cream, (3) cups of milk, (3) cups of sugar = Six Threes. Easy as can be! I've adapted my grandmother's recipe for a basic 1.5 quart ice cream maker and added the pinch of salt and the vanilla that it seems I just can't skip. We all LOVE this ice cream.
Six Threes Ice Cream
Yield: (8) 1/2 cup servings
1 banana, mashed
juice of 1 orange
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
seeds from 1 vanilla bean, scraped or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
Stir together the fruit, the sugar, salt and vanilla until combined. Stir in the milk and cream and pour into your ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Serve immediately for soft serve ice cream or transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze for 2-3 hours prior to serving. Enjoy!
A while back, I read about the Food Blogger Prop Swap. That sounded like way too much fun to miss! I absolutely love getting surprises in the mail. I sent a box of props off to another food blogger and eagerly awaited my own. You can only imagine my grin when I saw Faith's return address on the box I received. If you are familiar with her blog, An Edible Mosaic, you already know that she is an amazing photographer. I could hardly wait to see what she sent!
I loved every single thing in the box, but those spoons in the ice cream photo actually made me squeal. They inspired me to think outside my normal mode of just snapping a picture minutes before we sit down to eat. I had fun setting up the shot and playing with the staging a bit more this time. The Prop Swap is hosted by Alyssa of www.EverydayMaven.com and Faith of www.AnEdibleMosaic.com
