Boyd Family Pineapple Ice cream

This week my sister, Michelle, came to visit so she can spend some time with Eli and family.  We took a drive down to good ol' Boyd Angus Farms to visit our Mamoo.  She spend time visiting with us, made us a delicious lunch of her homemade chicken salad (with grapes and radishes, yum!).

My Mamoo was sharing some childhood memories with us and stumbled across her mother's recipe for homemade ice cream. I was telling her about how my mother-in-law makes the best homemade ice cream every year for 4th of July, so Mamoo shared this with me to make on my own and carry on the family tradition!

Pineapple  Ice Cream - Kate Wilson Boyd
3 pints whole milk
1 pint thick sweet cream
1 1/4 cup crushed pineapple (drained)
2 cup white sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1 tsp lemon extract

add mixture to milk and cream in ice cream freezer. Add 1 unbeaten egg white last.  Freeze at once, it takes just under half hour. 

You can find an ice cream maker at just about any superstore, but the older ones are the best and you can find them at auctions and antique stores sometimes.  Make sure you have lots of rock salt and ice and someone with strong arms for cranking!
