Ashburn’s Ice Cream Recipe

“We didn’t make homemade ice cream. We made Ashburn’s Ice Cream,” said Bill Ashburn in the July-August issue. Now you can make Ashburn’s Ice Cream too.

We had this recipe ready and waiting, but just ran out of room. So many people have shared their Ashburn’s memories that we decided to make room this time. Will that be one scoop or two?

Ashburn’s Original Vanilla Ice Cream

(Converted from a two-hundred gallon recipe by Lawrence Ashburn in August 2002.)

  • 3 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 49 ounces (3 ½ 14 ounce cans) sweetened condensed nonfat milk
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • ½ ounce plain gelatin dissolved in 1 cup warm water
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Adams vanilla extract
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1 drop red food coloring

Mix ingredients thoroughly, and then add enough water to make one gallon of mix.

Freeze according to freezer’s directions.

  1. I’m 55 and all my life since he closed down I have search for HAWIAN DELIGHT or BLACK CHERRY that my Ashburns had. I remember ordering it in that kind of dark cool black and white octagon tileed floor him with his paper boat hat and that water fountain by the wall WOW that was the coldest water ever

  2. Hi!
    Do I not remember correctly that my favorite Ashburns flavor was lemon custard?

    Is there a recipe for it?

    Thank you!

  3. I love Ashburns ice cream. My Daddy bought some home some vanilla on Feb.6, 1957. My momma added her homemade chocolate syrup. I remember that night because momma went onto labor and my youngest little brother was born the next day!
