Jersey Ice Cream

During the 1770s, ice creams were referred to as "iced puddings" or "ice cream puddings." The cones used were referred to as wafers. During this period, wafers were considered as "stomach settlers" and were served at the end to the meal to calm the digestion. They eventually became luxurious treats and become an important element of the dessert course. When rolled into the "funnels" or "cornucopias," they can be filled with all sorts of fruit pastes, creams, and iced puddings.

2 whole eggs
2 tablespoons flour

½ teaspoon salt

Reduce heat so that the water in bottom part of boiler does not boil. Beat eggs slightly, stir in a little of the hot milk mixture. Cook it over hot water 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from stove, chill. Combine it with cream, add vanilla, and churn in ice cream freezer until you get proper consistency. It makes 3½ quarts.
