We bought an ice cream maker this weekend, and used it today to make strawberry ice cream. And oh my, it was so good and fairly easy.*
I also managed to obtain proof that occasionally, men DO read the manual.
If you're interested (or wish to whet your appetite further), you can view the blow-by-blow ice-cream-making photos on Flickr starting here.
* Says she who merely spectated in the making (though she then was, as you can imagine, an integral participant in the subsequent tasting).
