Peanut Butter Ice Cream Recipe

Meet the Cook: It's the big flock of ducks my husband and I used to raise that inspired me to create this recipe. When we found ourselves with a surplus of their eggs, ice cream seemed a good place to put them. Our three children are 23, 15 and 3. -Sigrid Guillot, Thibodaux, Louisiana
