I was trying to think of a nice treat for Canada Day (that is red and white of course!) and thought that homemade Cherry Vanilla ice cream would hit the spot! Homemade ice cream is so easy to make and tastes so good! Here's the recipe:

Basic Vanilla Ice Cream
NOTE:This makes 2 batches of vanilla ice cream in a standard size ice cream maker! You can half the recipe if you want.

4 cups of whole milk
1 3/4 cups of sugar
3/4 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of vanilla
4 cups of whipping cream

Heat half of the milk until just lukewarm. Add the sugar and salt. Stir until dissolved then add the remaining milk. Chill thoroughly.(I usually chill it overnight) Just before freezing add the vanilla and whipping cream. Stir well then follow the instructions for your ice cream maker.

You can take this basic recipe and make any type of ice cream that you'd like.  If you want to make orange ice cream you can use frozen orange juice concentrate. Thaw the can of juice and add about 1/2 of the can to a batch of vanilla before you put the mix into the machine. Do NOT dilute the juice with water. The concentrate will add all the flavour without ruining the ice cream mix. It will taste similar to a creamsicle! Add some drained crushed pineapple (in light syrup) and you'll have the best orange pineapple ice cream ever!
You can puree any type of fruit (adding about 2 tablespoons of sugar per cup) to flavour your ice cream. Adding the sugar is important for any fruit (pureed, sliced or whole fruit) added to ice cream. Always add any addition of fruit or other items (chocolate chips, nuts etc.) when the ice cream is frozen but still soft unless instructed otherwise by the manufacturer of the ice cream maker.  Remember to store it in a freezer safe container.

One batch of basic vanilla ice cream
One jar of maraschino cherries

Add one jar of well drained maraschino cherries to the basic vanilla mix after the ice cream is almost done or when your ice cream maker's instructions say to add optional ingredients.

Have a Happy Canada Day and enjoy the recipe!
