Add 8 pastured egg yolks  to a stand up mixer on high to emulsify for 10 minutes. Add 1 cup of homemade kefir made from raw cream, 2 teaspoons vanilla and  1/4 cup local honey, or less. We are not sweet eaters and lean on the less side. Add 15 ounces of pumpkin, one tablespoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of nutmeg (freshly grated nutmeg is best) and 1 teaspoon of ground ginger. 

Add this mixture to your ice cream maker and let it chill. Store it in your freezer until you’re ready to consume. A little goes a long way. 

Bowl of Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, first, ask for one on your Christmas list – it’ll be a present for the whole family and you’ll never regret it! Ice cream makers with their own refrigeration unit, or compressor, with a stainless steel (as opposed to an aluminum one), like this one, or this one, are phenomenal in several ways. They can make batch after batch after batch of ice cream without fail. Additionally, they make ice cream that is not so soft, soft serve but instead make it more like ice cream from a store bought container. After this ice cream is put in the freezer, it’s most like ice cream from the store, it’s truly amazing. 

Ice cream makers with compressors on them are larger but do not have a bowl on them that needs to be stored in your freezer, stealing valuable freezer space. There is not contest, in these ice cream makers. Choosing a wooden tub with you churn or getting an ice cream maker with a compressor is the only way to go for authentic ice cream feel and consistency. Finding one that does not use an aluminum bowl is important, like this one, as aluminum and other heavy metals detrimental to your health.
