Ice cream recipes for the PA and egg allergic
Vanilla Ice Cream:
Scald 2 cups light cream over low heat (you want to get a few bubbles but not to the point where it starts to boil). Stir in 3/4 cup sugar and 1/8 tsp salt. Let cool and stir in 1 tsp vanilla. Chill in refrigerator. Add 2 more cups cream (light or heavy) and chill overnight. Then make in ice cream maker.
Chocolate Ice Cream:
In medium saucepan combine 1/3 cup cocoa and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Stir in 1 12oz can of evaporated milk over medium heat until cocoa and sugar dissolve. Cool to room temperature. Add 1 tsp vanilla and 2 cups whipping cream. Chill in refrigerator overnight.
There is a book called "Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt" by Mable and Gar Hoffman (Fisher Books, 2000, ISBN# 1-55561-247-4) that has quite a few eggless recipes and lots of sorbet recipes. I've just fooled around with the vanilla recipes by adding different things (for example, cinammon, chocolate chips, pureed strawberries, etc) to come up with a few different flavors.
My husband likes the ice cream right when it's finished in the ice cream maker (it's more like soft-serve) but the kids like the consistency better when I put it in the freezer for a few hours.
We got some fancy ice cream sundae glasses at a kitchen store and the kids really love eating it out of those! They also like eating ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches made out of the ice cream and graham crackers or cookies.
I hope this is helpful to some other PA/nut/egg allergic children! You are not alone!
