We've tried it a couple of times with fair results.  Anyone have a good recipe?

I have little icecream maker. the bowl is kept in the freezer until use. it works great. and it is sooooo easy to make now. jsut mix up the ingredients turn the machine on and pour it in. homemade ice cream in 20 no work minutes!

this is the recipe i use.

2 cups milk
1 cup cream (store bought ... too hard to get cream from goat milk)
1/2- 3/4 cup sugar
1-2 tsp vanilla

I don't like icecream unless it is homemade. I grew up with homemade ice cream and the store bought stuff tastes gross to me. slippery and shallow. I like the feel of the icecrystals you get in homemade icecream. yum!

Goat milk ice cream sure sound delish! I don't know if I ever had any.

Maybe this is a little off topic...but...it does have to do with making stuff from goat milk. I have recently discovered the deliciousity of marinated fresh mozarrella balls.

You put them in olive oil w/the appropriate spices (garlic, oregano, basil, red pepper, etc) and marinate for a few hours. (Recipes for the marinade are all over the internet. Search marinated mozzarella balls)

Then eat with crackers (they are excellent with rosemary & garlic triscuit crackers).

Anyways, I got to thinking that this would be the perfect thing to do with fresh goat cheese!
Can't wait to try it!

thanks, we'll try that!

hmmmm....  "deliciousity"  that's a fun word!  very descriptively encompassing.  and fun to say out loud

Thanks, Gary! I like making up words. In another thread on here I was talking about spaminousity.

you can make mozzarella with goat cheese! haven't done it yet but a freind of mine has and she said it was pretty easy and turned out well. I've done soft cheeses, chevre. labneh and yogurt and did a few hard cheeses too. I don't have a spot to let the hard cheese age so it was less than impressive. one of these days (gee another ...someday......dream. ) I will get my hands on an old dorm fridge that I can tweak the temp on and have a spot to age cheese. here was a pic of my hard cheese. it was pretty but bland. I'm sure its because I aged it in a reg. refrigerator which wasn't really aging it at all.

The "fresh" (so the store calls it) mozzarella balls are pretty bland too; nothing like the aged mozarella. But once they are marinated in the olive oil and spices, it's really good! Can't wait to try it with some home raised, home made goat cheese!
