Total: 5 Hours
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 pinch of salt
- Set a medium bowl in a large bowl of ice water. In a small saucepan, combine the cream, milk, sugar and salt and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar completely. Pour the ice cream base into the medium bowl and let cool completely, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate until very cold, at least 1 hour or overnight.
- Pour the base into an ice cream maker with flavorings, if using, and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the ice cream to a plastic container, cover and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.
