This recipe is so incredibly simple…and so delicious and refreshing! We made our’s with an electric wood churn, rock salt and ice…just the way I did when I was a kid. Make some memories with your children this summer!

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • rock salt and ice (if doing in a wood churn) or freezer ice cream maker


  1. Heat milk, whipping cream and sugar in saucepan until boiling. Watch closely so the milk doesn't burn. Remove from heat.

  4. Pour mixture into ice cream churn container. Add ice and rock salt to the barrel and churn according to your ice cream makers directions (about 30-45 minutes).
