Banana Ginger Ice Cream

Of all the ice creams I've made so far, this one is by far Kirsten's favorite, so it's probably one that I will be making again and again. Also, as far as ice cream goes, it's a really simple recipe.

Banana Ginger Ice Cream

1 Can evaporated milk
1 pint cream
1/2 C sugar
2 very ripe bananas
1.5 Tbs vanilla (this is a lot of vanilla, but I love vanilla)
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of clove
dash of sea salt

1. Mix the milk, cream, and sugar until the sugar dissolves.
2. Mix in the bananas. Use a hand blender or mixer to incorporate the bananas into the mixture.
3. Mix in all other ingredients.
4. Transfer to ice cream maker and follow instructions.

And then you have some most excellent banana spice ice cream! You can also use pumpkin, about one cup, to replace the banana, but the banana flavor is stronger. If you use the pumpkin, add a bit more sugar, less ginger and more cinnamon.
