Easy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

We’re still hanging onto summer here in Oregon, however, not for too much longer.  While summer and the hot weather are both still here, we are nearing the end of summer according to the yearly calendar.  That being said, we will continue to make homemade vanilla ice cream as long as we can.  Making homemade ice cream is really as simple as mixing together the ingredients and finishing it in your ice cream maker.  We really enjoy making vanilla ice cream because the toppings and mix-ins are so versatile.  Whether you top your ice cream with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, sprinkles, or add it to a root beer float.  But just a bowl of plain old vanilla ice cream is hard to pass up!

Homemade Brown Sugar

Is there really anything better than homemade brown sugar? It is amazing how easy it is to make your own brown sugar.  Most people already have all the ingredients on hand to make their own brown sugar.  Not only can you make the softest and freshest brown sugar but you can also control the ingredients used to make the brown sugar.  You get to decide if you want to use organic sugar, pure cane sugar, coconut sugar or any other raw sugar.  Unfortunately, we haven’t tested this method on sugar alternatives so we could not make a recommendation on whether or not these could be used.  You also get to decide if you want to use sulphured molasses, black strap molasses, or unsulphured molasses.
