5.0 out of 5 stars Fab tasting and easy to make, 20 April 2006
By 
This review is from: Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book (Paperback)
Great ice cream and the recipes are really easy to follow, once you have made the conversion from US cup sizes.

There is a "base recipe" which seems to be the cornerstone of 95% of the ice cream recipes and it is far simpler to make than working with a custard base, as a lot of recipes do that I've found in other books.

Others have complained that some of the ingredients are difficult to find, but I think they are missing the point in slavishly following the recipes - that is what R and D is all about. Have fun and experiment - you won't be disappointed, after all, this is only about making ice cream! If you feel you really have to, a little research on the internet will enable you to order some of the less well known ingredients, or give you the UK equivalents of them

A word of warning, however: American ice cream makers must have double the capacity of my English one, so unless you want to make enough for about 10 people, halve the quantities given in the recipes.

Hi
I am a greaty fan of Ben and Jerry's. Can anyone please tell me what the cup conversion is for 1/4 cup of grated chocolate and 1/4 cup of cherrries (tinned). I am making Cherry Garcia of course. My favourite.
Thank you
Geoffrey Pratt

Hi Geoffrey

You can actually buy measuring cups in the supermarket or any kitchen shop (I think I found mine in Asda!) and you gan then measure recipes really easily as you get about 3 or 4 cups (same kind of style as the measuring spoons you get) that measure full cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup etc.

Hi Geoffrey,
I know this is a bit late but I can tell you that an American cup is the equvalent of 8oz. A qurter cup is therefore 2oz. Hope this helps.

google cups to metric and you will find a list of virtually every ingredient.
eg 1 cup of plain flour = 150grm.
