Ingredients :
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
5 cups whole milk
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

How To Make Vanilla Ice Cream :

In a large heavy saucepan, whisk eggs and sugar until blended; stir in milk. Cook over low heat until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and a thermometer reads at least 160°, stirring constantly. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat immediately.
Quickly transfer to a large bowl; place bowl in a pan of ice water. Let sit for 2 minutes, occasionally stirring gently. Stir in half-and-half, heavy cream and vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of the custard. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Fill cylinder of ice cream maker no more than two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. (Refrigerate any remaining mixture until ready to freeze.)
Transfer ice cream to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.

For peppermint ice cream, crush mints to equal 1 cup and stir into ice cream mixture, or substitute peppermint extract for 1 teaspoon of the vanilla.
