Welcome to Ice Cream Week!
Summer is quickly coming to an end and I have so many yummy ice cream recipes that I haven’t shared yet, so this week I will be sharing a recipe every day. So sit back, relax and get ready for some DeLiciOus, YuMmY, FaNtasTic homemade ice cream recipes.
This first one that I am sharing is out of this world. I know you’re probably saying to yourself: “grape ice cream?!” — don’t deny it, I know you are. I have gotten so many funny reactions and faces over the years when I’ve told people about grape ice cream or made it for a party. But trust me, as soon as they taste it they are hooked.
This recipe has been in our family for years. I loved it as a kid and still love it. It is probably one of my favorite homemade ice creams. I think it’s even safe for me to say that this is probably one of my entire family’s (aunts, uncles, parents, siblings, cousins, etc) favorite ice creams.
It is so refreshing and absolutely delicious! I could go on FOREVER about how good this ice cream is, but you should just make it and see for yourself.
- 2 cans (12 oz) frozen grape juice concentrate
- 3 cups sugar
- juice of 3 lemons
- 1 pint whipping cream (slightly beaten)
- 1 can evaporated milk
- 2 qt. milk
In medium bowl slightly whisk whipping cream until frothy. Pour into ice cream canister.
Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
This recipe is for a 4 or 6-quart ice cream freezer. If you are using a 4-quart just add milk to the "fill line" on your ice cream container. It doesn't always need the full 2 quarts. If you're making this in a smaller ice cream freezer like this one then just half the recipe.
You use the frozen grape juice concentrate straight from the can, don't make the grape juice with the water according to the directions on the can.
