Country Ice Cream

I made this for Kathleen's birthday. It is more of a custard texture and flavor than ice cream. I liked it, but most everyone else preferred our regular ice cream recipe. This was a firmer custard and didn't melt nearly as fast as regular ice cream. If you like custard, try this. It is from an Amish cookbook.

Country Ice Cream
Family Treasures cookbook

4 eggs
2 c sugar
5 c milk
4 c whipping cream
4 1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
2 small pkg vanilla pudding

Beat eggs for 5 minutes.  Beat in 2 c sugar and 1 c milk until thick.  Add the rest of the milk, cream, vanilla and salt.  Sprinkle pudding over top and then beat in.   This will fill a 6 qt ice cream freezer.  Other flavors of pudding can be used instead of vanilla.
