2,158 is the number of calories in the organic vanilla ice cream I made today. And 158 grams of fat.

It supposedly makes 5 cups, and serves 8.

We'll see. Ha!

Here's the recipe I used (modified from this Williams Sonoma recipe:

3c heavy cream
3/4c sugar
6 egg yolks
1.5 tsp vanilla

Heat cream until just before a simmer. Meanwhile, mix egg yolks and sugar until lightened. When cream is hot, temper by slowly pouring cream into sugar and yolk mixture while beating quickly. When about 1/2 is in there, pour the whole thing back into the pot. Reheat while constantly stirring until it coats the back of a spoon - about 5 minutes. Chill 3 hours. Pour into running ice cream machine and churn for 30 minutes. Try not to eat too much while you are putting it into a freezer safe container. Wait one hour. Consume.
