  1. crystal; thanx for sharing this recipe; the best are the ones that are handed down and thankfully
    you have the ingredients. my grandma made the best coleslaw on the planet { according
    to anyone who ever ate it } and while I can “see” her at the kitchen counter and “see” the
    process; the actual recipe went with her to the grave ~~~~~~~~~~~~ 🙂 ♥♥

    1. We make Vanilla and put toppings and peanuts on. Personally I just like a little peanuts on my homemade vanilla ice cream because it is to good to put toppings on.


  2. Crystal, I love keeping my family recipes going for another generation, so it was fun to find you still making one from your great grandmother! Fill 3/4 full of milk–would that be about 2 1/2 quarts? (We love cats, too. Daisy Mae is a beauty!)
