Old-Time Vanilla Ice Cream

Ingredients

2 cups heavy cream

2 cups whole milk

3/4 cups sugar

2 tsp vanilla

Pinch salt

Good quality chocolate for garnish.

Whisk all ingredients together until sugar dissolves. Pour into the bowl of an ice cream machine. Freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream is made, transfer to an airtight container. Cover tightly and freeze until ready to serve. When ready to serve, make chocolate curls using a vegetable peeler. Serve ice cream garnished with curls.

3/4 cup sugar

1 tsp lemon juice

Pinch salt

Peel and slice peaches, then freeze until firm. Stir sugar into 3/4 cup water and blend with frozen peaches, along with lemon juice and salt, until creamy and smooth. Eat immediately soft-serve-style, or freeze in a loaf pan up to 3 days.
