One thing that will always make a hot, sunny day better is a scoop of ice cream in a waffle cone! But what to do if the ice cream man isn’t in your neighborhood? Why, make your own of course! It’s much easier to make ice cream than many believe, and it’s also incredibly fun, particularly if the kids are involved.
German ice cream is modeled after Italian gelato – it tends to be hand-made, uses less cream (and more milk) and few or no eggs, and have an intense fruit or nut flavor. Our collection of German ice cream recipes starts with the simplest vanilla ice cream recipe, and continues with a selection of fresh flavors that will make a beautiful summer’s day even better.
