Even though I’ve been talking about an old-fashioned ice cream maker, this sort of recipe could be made in any sort of machine, from a bowl of ice to those fancy Kitchen Aid contraptions.
My great-great grandparents, down on the farm, used to make this as a custard. However, I prefer my dad’s modified gelato version.
