Caramel Ice Cream Recipe

Every Fourth of July, our family would gather for a picnic, fireworks and scoops of my mother's special ice cream. I can also remember sitting around the coal stove eating it at my sister's house. Boy, was it good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2013

It sounded good but it was very difficult to make. The sugar that's being browned and turned into caramel needs to be started at the same timeish as the flour, egg, milk and sugar. I got the sugar browned then proceeded to the next part and by the time it came to a boil (it can't be high since its milk) the caramel part was now a solid mass of almost hard crack sugar. I did it twice. and if u follow the recipe as it is stated chances are that it will do the same thing for you.
