ROOT BEER ICE CREAM
Root Beer Ice Cream
This makes a very icy kind of ice cream, for those who remember the good old days, it's more like an ice milk than ice cream. Very refreshing when the humidity is high. Thank God they make electric ice cream makers, I remember the 4th of July as a kid and the old hand crank ice cream that took all three of us boys in turn to create... and all the ice, and salt and the mess. Although the results were always really tasty. I have reduced this recipe from my parents original, since my cuisinart ice cream maker is not as big as the old hand crank we had when I was a kid. I also have forgone the use of A & W Root Beer since it is now made with High Fructose corn syrup instead of Sugar opting for Virgil's Natural brewed Root Beer. This is not so much for flavor, although that is part of the reason, as it is the fact that High Fructose Corn Syrup doesn't freeze the same as Sucrose Sugar.
