Organic Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

By Nancy Smorch

My husband loves chocolate!  So the girls and I made organic homemade chocolate ice cream for him for Father’s Day.  The particular recipe I used was Alton Brown’s.  It’s time consuming and takes a while, but it’s well worth it. 

We made it a couple of years ago and I have tried other recipes since then, but none of them have come close to the creaminess and truly authentic taste that this recipe has.  And, a few of the ingredients were even local - we used local cream, local eggs, and local strawberries to top it off.  My husband said it was honestly the best chocolate ice cream he’s ever had!!  I would have to agree. 

So, don’t let the time it takes deter you from trying it - it is so worth it!!
