Homemade Frozen Custard

 Do you love the frozen custard sold at places like Culvers?  I do!  I recently got an ice cream maker and decided to give homemade frozen custard a try.  It’s not that hard to make, but the process is somewhat time-consuming.  It’s not for anyone who demands immediate gratification.  Trust me though… the final result is worth the wait!

Frugal Tip:  When a recipe calls for only egg yolks or egg whites, don’t throw the other part away!  They can frozen and kept for later use.
