Maple Ice cream

Maple Ice cream


6 tablespoons flour

1-1/2 cups brown sugar

2/3 cup white sugar

½ and 1/8 teaspoon salt

3 eggs, separated

2 -1/2 quarts milk

1 can evaporated milk

1 teaspoon maple flavouring

½ teaspoon vanilla flavouring


Mix flour, sugars, salt, egg yolks, and 1- ½ cups of the milk.  Bring 1-1/2 quarts of the milk to a boil; add four mixtures to milk and boil 5 minutes; remove from heat and cool.  Add stiffly beaten egg whites, remainder of milk, vanilla, maple, and evaporated milk; freeze.


To freeze: Use a 4 – quart hand-crank or electric ice-cream maker.  Pour maple mixture into freezer container; insert dasher and cover with lid.  Place in bucket; attach the hand crank or motor.


Fill bucket half full with ice.  Sprinkle on about 1 cup salt (rock).  Continue adding layers of ice and salt in a 4-to-1 proportion to 1 inch below can lid.  (As ice melts, add more ice and salt up to this level.)  Begin cranking.  (For electric ice-cream maker, follow manufacturer’s direction.)  It takes about 20-25 minutes to freeze. 


To serve, remove or motor.  Drain off water.  Wipe off lid before removing.  Remove dasher.  Serve immediately for best texture.  Makes about 1 gallon or 8 ( 8 ounce) servings.
