Katy's Famous Strawberry Ice Cream

1 3 oz. package strawberry jello
2 cups of sugar

Pour into the ice cream container

Pour into that 1 cup of boiling water

Stir this until it is all dissolved

Add to that 1 beaten egg

1 tbsp. of lemon juice

Add 1 can of evaporated milk

½ pint of whipping cream

½ pint of half and half

1 quart of mashed fruit (She usually uses strawberries, but any fruit would work.)

Put the strawberries or your fruit in a blender…….Mix it with either the evaporated milk, whipping cream, or half and half. This will help the mixture and it will make it so the fruit isn’t chunky. (You can mix it with any of the three things to help the fruit be smooth.)

Put it all in the ice cream machine

All of this should take it up to the fill line….if not, add more fruit or regular milk.

You can either make it right then or put it in the fridge….1/2 hour before you want to eat it, start churning it.

Pack the ice and rock salt around it…..layer ice and salt around

1 bag and ½ of ice.

Note: If you want to have everything ready before hand:

Mix everything together and put it in the fridge for as long as you need….1/2 hour before you want to eat it, start churning it. This will make it so you don’t need to use as much ice and rock salt to make the ice cream and to help it set up.
