For all you raw milk newbies that want to make your own ice cream, here is my Vanilla Bean ice cream recipe. Yum!
You have a blog commenter to thank for this one. Lune X wrote in to this blog, asking for this recipe! Here it is:
Kimberly’s Really Raw Ice Cream–it Moo’s!
2 cups raw cream from grass-fed dairy cow
1 cup raw milk from grass-fed dairy cow
2 raw egg yolks from a pasture raised chicken
1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup
1 Organic Vanilla Bean
1 teaspoon Organic Vanilla Extract
Add the cream and milk, yolks to a large bowl, plus the maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it add either 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup, taste the batter to decide). Slice open the vanilla bean and scrape the inside to produce the teensy tiny little seeds. Stir vanilla scrapings into the batter.
Chill the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes or so. Then pour into the drum of an ice cream maker. Or, if you don’t have an ice cream maker, keep chilling in the freezer but stir it every 10 minutes or so. It should still come out great that way.
VARIATION: Add one sliced banana to the batter for Vanilla Bean Banana!
Where to find awesome organic vanilla beans, CHEAP!
I buy my vanilla beans from a guy in our Whole Foods meetup group. Check out what he says about his product, below:
“… if anybody is interested in some whole organic vanilla beans, I am selling some for only 1$ a bean! Which is an amazing price since organic vanilla is usually 3-5$ per bean!
It’s good vanilla too, grade A organic Tahitian beans, sun cured without alcohol. They are from Papua, New Guinea, each bean is 6 to 7 inches long, and rich with oil since they are fresh. Each bean has about 60,000 seeds on the inside (think black specks in french vanilla ice cream!)
And they are only a dollar a bean! If anyone is interested just visit my ebay power sellers site.“
