Sweet Cream Base #1: 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
Sweet Cream Base #2: 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 in the half-and-half
and whisk to blend.
Sweet Cream Base #3: 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.
