Notes about this book

  • AngelNewsi on July 13, 2011

    I made the Oreo mint ice cream and it was delicious! I really like that you don't have to cook the base ice cream. Makes the process much easier for me.

    The chocolate ice cream recipes are to die for! I added some crushed up Thin Mint cookies, and I swear my guests swooned over it. I've tried a few of these recipes, they are amazing.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fresh Georgia peach

    • Cheri on August 23, 2013

      Reduce qty's by 1/3. This still makes a full quart. The better the peaches (juicier) the better the ice cream. This one was a bit grainy, but still good.

      The recipe split and was unusable - might just be me...

  • Strawberry

    • Cheri on August 18, 2013

      This is an excellent version of fresh strawberry ice cream. For the Cuisinart 1.5 qt. machine, cut down by at least 25%, or machine will overflow. Use less sugar in the base, as sugar and berries make it plenty sweet.

  • Peanut butter

    • AngelNewsi on July 19, 2011

      I made this recipe for my fiance's birthday. Peanut butter is one of his all-time favorite foods. He literally puts it on everything. I, on the other hand, could take it or leave it most days. I was fully prepared to think this ice cream would be just okay - boy, was I wrong! So yummy! I made an ice cream pie with this and the pie was gone two days later.

  • After-dinner mint

    • Analyze on February 21, 2019

      This is SO good!!!!!!!!!! I'm always amazed that a store-bought candy could be so delicious; add Andes Mints to ice cream, and it's the bomb. We love it with either chocolate or vanilla ice cream as the base. To really make it insanely delicious, try pairing it with the Simple Ice Cream Pie from the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook: make an oreo cookie crust baked into a pie dish, top with ice cream, then garnish with fresh whipped cream and hot fudge sauce. Oh my goodness was that good!!!

Publishers Text

Despite a philosophical disagreement over chunk size--Ben prefers them large and occasional while Jerry favors frequent, somewhat smaller ones--together Ben and Jerry are good friends who make great ice cream.

Now they share all the recipes and techniques that have made them nationwide heros. Specially adapted to make at home, there are 90 recipes in all, including sorbets, summer slushes, giant sundaes and other ice-cream concoctions. All you have to do is remember Ben & Jerry's two rules of ice-cream making: Rule #1: You don't have to be a pro to make incredibly delicious ice cream and Rule #2: There's no such thing as an unredeemingly bad batch of homemade ice cream.
