Ice Cream! I was sad to leave my beloved Donvier hand crank ice cream maker back east when I headed west last winter. I got that for $5 at a stoop sale in Brooklyn and made many a fine ice cream with it. I was thus thrilled when I stumbled upon a mini half pint ice cream maker from the fine folks at Donvier at an estate/yard sale about a month ago. I inquired and found the price to be a whopping $1 so I took it with glee. There she sits, in all her icy glory.
The ice cream recipes I usually use are for about 2 pints, so I needed to scale down for the wee half pinter. The maker came with a handy little instruction guide on the box as well as a basic recipe. I veganized that baby and got my churn on. Here's a poor quality blurry photo of that Donvier magic happening.
This post may indeed be fun but it isn't really Halloween themed. I did
put the ice cream in an orange container to really up the festive
quality though. I got those vintage tupperwares for 25 cents at the same estate sale. 20 minutes to a wee serving of homemade ice cream. Long live the Donvier!
