I started thinking I’d make vanilla ice cream. It looked like a recipe with ingredients I had on hand.

In a bowl whisk a couple eggs.

and milk.

mix it all together.

instead of vanilla I added maple syrup because at this point I’d changed my mind from making vanilla ice cream to making maple ice cream.

Carefully pour it into the ice cream maker container.

figure out how the paddle thing attaches... it was not a s hard as we tried to make it.

Layer in ice and salt.

And more ice and salt.

My experience with the ice cream maker wasn't terribly successful yet not a failure either. It just didn’t freeze up, so I had to put it in the freezer to harden. And that worked fine.

So I suggest you read the directions of the ice cream maker first or you might get ice cream that just wont get past “too soupy”.

Freeze for a few hours or over night.

serve with maple syrup.
