I love the nostalgic posts on CH and have been thinking of the homemade ice cream my mother made when I was a child. It was plain vanilla, but she used canned, evaporated milk and made a custard that was then churned. (by hand when I was really little!) I ordered a cone of "frozen custard" in Myrtle Beach during a vacation a couple of years ago and it tasted so much like hers I got tears in my eyes! Did your family make a special flavor or recipe when you were a child?
