pI'm not sure if I'm posting this on the right board, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good ice cream maker for home use? From what I've read, there are really no safe ice cream products in the US, so I'd like to make my own for my son, who was just diagnosed with PA. /p
pThanks in advance!/p

I saw a show on ice cream makers that used an egg substitute product (you can buy them in any grocery store) instead of an egg; that way you don't have to cook the liquid before making the ice cream. Also, my ice cream maker came with a simple vanilla recipe that contains only cream, milk, sugar and vanilla extract. It doesn't have quite the same ice cream taste (it tastes pretty much like frozen whipped cream; not that that's a bad thing), but it is very easy. And I'm sure you can just add fruit or other flavorings to it. I don't have it in front of me, but I will look it up and reply back soon.

Welcome to the wonderful world of homemade Ice Cream!
I have never used eggs to make our ice cream and I think it turns out great. Here is the basic recipe I use:
For one quart (multiply each ingredient times however many quarts your maker makes):
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 vanilla bean (cut lengthwise and scrape out tiny seeds inside)
Combine all ingredients and let them sit in the fridge for several hours (overnight if you can wait that long) to let the vanilla bean soak). Then follow your IC Maker's instructions.
Variations:
Add 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and ginger and a pinch of ground cloves for ice cream that tastes better than Pumpking pie at Thanksgiving!
Add any 'safe' candy once ice cream just begins to set.
Good Luck!

You may want to check out the Snacks/Recipes board. There was a thread on this a while ago.

I just saw a recipe in a magazine the other day that I'm going to try. It was 1 pkg. chocolate (I guess you could use any flavour) instant pudding mix plus 2 1/2 cups milk plus 8 oz. cool whip and freeze. The result looked just like ice cream. I may have the milk amount wrong as I'm doing this from memory. It's either 1 1/2 cups or 2 1/2. Hope this helps.

We have a Cuisinart Ice-cream maker and it is fantastic. It make delicious ice-cream. WE are also very fortunate to have a safe brand of ice-cream in Canada called Chapmans which we use when we are't able to make our own.

I got a Krups for Christmas but the motor just broke. I have already sent it back to Krups and am awaiting a new one. I liked the ice cream maker, right up until it broke.

In case you are looking for an ice cream--my son eats Breyer's Natural Vanilla ice cream with no problems at all.
The ingredients are: milk, cream, sugar, natural vanilla flavor
For chocolate--I just add Nestle's Quik Chocolate (the powder version you add to milk to get chocolate milk) to the vanilla ice cream.

Is Breyer's safe from cross-contamination? I've read so much about manufacturers who produce a peanut-containing product, then don't wash down their machines thoroughly, so I wasn't sure if Breyer's was safe.
Actually, my son has had several ice cream products with no reaction (Edy's, Crowley, Perry's), but since finding out he is PA (just last week), I'm afraid to give him anything now, even those products he never reacted to in the past.
It's just so hard to know what is safe.
Thanks for any advice or info you can offer on Breyer's!

Our ice-cream maker is Donvier, we love it, it's very easy to use. You keep the metal cylinder in your freezer until you are ready to use it. It's all hand cranked, but doesn't take that long and my kids love to do all the cranking.
