Master of the house has an "ice cream fetish" shhhhhhh! As I type here in the office, I am surrounded by an collection of you name it. Ahead of me are two-3' icecream cone wooden cutouts mounted on my plaster walls. You want ice cream?!? Mirrors, cartons, sherberts, floats. To my right, an oak hoosier filled with variety old soda-fountain items. To my left an oak sideboard, its drawers bursting with scoops, packers, molds, ice picks, crackers, shavers, advertisers, smoothy shakers, malt bullets, icecream freezers, kinky ice tongs, malt mixers, juicers, You want icecream recipe? HA!!!!!!!! (Diabolical laugh)

Someone try dusting this stuff. You want recipe? I've got ten antique icecream makers. I've got every peripheral, I've got allllll the paraphernalia, I've got the books. A couple times, I've asked the boss, "Can you share a recipe?" for my forum, the answer-- send $5 and a SASE to...Ha ha!

I have no collections, no cut-outs, no scoops, packers, molds etc. But I'd be happy to taste test any ice cream you make for evaluation. Send a postage paid freezer to...(look out - Geeves is catchy!)

Hey, got an hour? I will share anything! But the icecream monster won't. But let me add, I can think of worse things to be obsessed with. :) Perhaps a bribe is in order here, and I'll check to see if I can find a bookmark or something in one of these books. More Later! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Alright, The icecream monster (IM)of the house has finally tossed a little "crumb" here. Please note this is a LITE no-cook "simple, tried and true". *NOTE: The finest, old recipes--many contained real cream and were finished with raw eggs. Will spare the debate there, in order to promote healthful eating. *** Did you know the late, great Pritikin listed "icecream" as one of those no-no's (along with fried foods, butter, cheese, whole milk). ***

Peach Icecream (Any sweetened berry will work too!)

Warm: 1 c. milk (Dare to go lite! It's ok!)

Stir-in: 1/2 c. sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

Chill the mix (in icecream canister)

Add: 2-3 c. half & half or cream. (Dare again to be lite!)

2-2&1/2 c. sweetened peaches

1 tsp. vanilla

If you have hand blender use that to whirl up "sweetened" fruit etc. right in canister. Icecream Monster says warming the mix will dissolve the sugar. Also, IM said a good result is 2% milk and simply use 1/2& 1/2, skip the cream. Reprogram thy tastebuds, and ENJOY!

Follow icecream mixer directions to mix. IM says 30-45 min. mixing should be fine, and also adds "ok to eat immediately," but prefers to "set" in freezer for a while, then serve.

Thank the IM from the EG (eternally grateful). Just wanted to introduce my own acronym.
