BEN & JERRY'S SWEET CREAM BASES FOR ICE CREAM

Sweet Cream Base #1
2 large eggs
3/4 C. sugar
2 C. heavy or whipping cream
1 C. milk

This is Ben and Jerry's most popular base, has creamy texture, medium body, and a subtle, understated taste. It's especially good as a background for fruit, cookies and candy. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue to whisk until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Makes 1 quart.

Sweet Cream Base #2
2 C. heavy or whipping cream
3/4 C. sugar
2/3 C. half-and-half

This simple recipe is made with a minimum of ingredients and requires no cooking. It makes a very creamy ice cream with 25% butterfat, but it does not store well in home freezers, so be prepared to eat it all!! Pour the cream into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour the half and half and whisk to blend. Makes 1 quart.

Sweet Cream Base #3
2 C. light cream
1 C. sweetened condensed milk - cold

This recipe makes a less creamy, less rich ice cream. Ben likes the slightly cooked flavor of the sweetened condensed milk. Whisk the light cream and the sweetened condensed milk together in a mixing bowl until blended. Makes 1 quart.
