RE: LOOKING for: Teaberry (Follow-Up #4)

It's a family secret, I really shouldn't.....just kidding! I live in Ga now, but I was passing thru Marysville in May on the way to visit Newport, Pa. This recipe probably came from there someplace, could be the one you were eating? Someone there in Newport or maybe Sunbury gave it to my mom in the 1960's. When I finally got teaberries again, I cut the ingredients in half and used my Cuisinart ice cream maker. My folks used to double the ingredients for our old ice cream freezer. Happy eating! tish

Teaberry Ice Cream
1 Tbl cornstarch
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 qt milk
4 eggs
4 cans Carnation evap. milk
1/3 cup teaberries (the little flavored candies)

Combine cornstarch, sugar & eggs - mix well. Heat canned milk until it begins to steam, remove from flame and pour over sugar slowly. Stir constantly. Add 1 qt milk. (now you can add a teaspoon of plain gelatin per quart, says it keeps it smooth - but we never did this). Put in ice cream freezer.

OK, recipe does not say to add the teaberries! A couple hours before getting the rest of the icecream mixture ready, My mom would measure the candies (little be-be size) in a measuring cup large enough to add some of the milk and let it sit, stirring occasionally until they mostly melted. She would pour this flavored liquid thru a sieve and into the pot last, after she had added the milk, just before it went into the the freezer cylinder. The teaberries never melted completely, there is a small white center left that tastes chalky, that is why it is seived, don't want that in your ice cream.

It is still my favorite flavor ice cream and I enjoy making it now and then. Now that I don't use a regular ice cream freezer, that rock salt flavor doesn't seep into the ice cream, sometimes when I put the icecream in my dish, I sprinkle just a little salt, it's a memory, ha.

Where are you getting your teaberries? A very nice lady got some for me and told me a couple places I could get them when I was down towards mechanicsville/burg ?. So far I'm still using the ones she got for me.

I hope you have a chance to make some soon and I hope it tastes as good as you remember. Please post that you got the recipe. Take care.... tish
