A must have for any ice cream fan!,
This review is from: Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book (Paperback)
I received this book along with a kenwood ice cream maker at christmas. I must say, at first I thought- theres no way that this book will help you create ice cream as good as the ben & jerry's that you buy in the supermarket. I was so wrong! The basic 'sweet cream base' recipe is so simple as it involves no cooking, and the end result is amazing. The ice cream is lovely and creamy and I'd even say it is better than what you can buy! Even the non-ice cream recipes (like the superfudge brownies) are brilliant.
The only downside are the american measurements...I find it very difficult to measure ingredients in cups! There are also quite a few american ingredients that I hadn't heard of but there is usually an english equivalent!
Overall this is a great buy, it has certainly saved me a lot of money as I don't have to buy expensive ben & jerry's anymore!

Dr. W. T. Flynn says:
US cups are 8 fluid ounces, so 2 fluid ounces shy of half a UK pint. Most UK tea cups (except very posh ones are about this size). Tea mugs, however are often closer to 1/2 UK pint. All American liquid measures are based on the 8 fluid ounce cup hence American pints are 16 fluid ounces (not 20 as in the UK). US quarts are 32 fluid ounces and US Gallons 128. Simple eh?
