Vanilla Ice Cream

We love to make ice cream. This is the recipe I grew up with. My parents have made home made ice cream for as long as I can remember. I think they have worn out 4 or 5 machines---hand crank and electric. We made peach ice cream over Labor Day weekend in our 6 qt machine. It was delicious!
Vanilla Ice Cream
for 4 qt machine.  (add what is in parentheses for a 6 qt machine)

6 eggs(plus 3)
2 c sugar(plus 1 cup)
1 can sweetened condensed milk(can add a 2nd can)
1 can evaporated milk(plus 1 more)
2 cups whipping cream((plus 1 cup)
1 T flour(add 1/2 T)
2 T vanilla(plus 1 T)
pinch of salt

Blend eggs until light and fluffy.  Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.

If adding fruit:  use 1 quart sweetened fruit.  We LOVE peach and add some almond extract to the mix.  We have made strawberry, too.
