Home-made Ice Cream with "real" Ingredients

Print

You really want to read the commercial ice cream labels because many of the brands have questionable ingredients(see below) and all are sweetened with a refined sweetener. Make your own and you will be surprised how wholesome it tastes. Just like our Great, Great Grandparents had out of the old wooden hand-cranked machine!

Below are ingredients, books and Kitchen tools that can be used in this recipe:

Home-made Recipes:

Real Vanilla:

2 egg yolks

1/3 to 1/2 cup of maple syrup or honey (depending on your sweet tooth)

1 T. of organic “real” vanilla extract

1 T. arrowroot powder

3 cups of heavy whipping cream (preferably raw from grass-fed cows)

Beat egg yolks with hand blender or food processor and blend in remaining ingredients. You can beat until the mixture starts to thicken or pour into ice cream maker in the more liquid form and follow manufactures instructions. Scoop this mixture into a pyrex glass container and freeze overnight. Take out of freezer a half an hour before serving to allow to thaw a bit so it is easier to scoop out.

Commercial Ingredients:

In the old days when this treat was made of whole eggs, cream and sugar and laboriously cranked out in the old home freezer, a serving was only an occasional family treat which didn’t do much harm. Today in this mass producing, synthetic age, it is another matter entirely. Today you may be treating your family to poison! Frozen dessert manufacturers are not required by law to list the additives used in the manufacturing of their product. Consequently, today most frozen treats are synthetic from start to finish. Analysis has shown the following:

DIETHYLGLYCOL: A cheap chemical used as an emulsifier instead of eggs is the same chemical used in antifreeze and in paint removers.

PIPERONAL: Used in place of vanilla. This chemical is used to kill lice.

ALDEHYDE C-17: Used to flavor cherry ice cream. It is an inflammable liquid also used in aniline dyes, plastic and rubber.

ETHYL ACETATE: Used to give a pineapple flavor—and as a cleaner for leather and textiles; its vapors have been known to cause chronic lung, liver and heart damage.

BUTYRALDEHYDE: Used in nut flavoring. It is one of the ingredients of rubber cement.

AMYL ACETATE: Used for its banana flavor. It is also used as an oil paint solvent.

BENZYL ACETATE: Used for its strawberry flavor. It is a nitrate solvent. The next time you are tempted by a luscious looking banana split sundae, think of it as a mixture of antifreeze, oil paint, nitrate solvent, and lice killer; and you won’t find it so appetizing.Price-Pottenger Nutrition foundation Health Journal

Is Your Favorite Ice Cream Made With Monsanto's Artificial Hormones?

Note: I always encourage everyone to use as much local, grown without chemicals ingredients (organic) and meat, eggs and dairy from animals that were/are free-ranging, raised without hormones and antibiotics. Seafood should be wild from unpolluted waters.
