This is a vintage recipe that I discovered after moving into an old farm house in rural Virginia. It was scribbled on a scrap of paper and dated '1930; Rose Ice Cream.'

I LOVED this! It tastes just like a rose smells. However it is more like an ice milk since its made w/o eggs and not cooked. I may try to go the cooked route next time to get a more creamy consistency. Read More

If you are using rose water rather than extract you may need to add several tablespoons. I just kept adding a half tablespoon at a time until it tasted like I wanted. Read More

In the ingredients list it says "rose extract" but in the directions it reads "rose water." I haven't made this yet but will try rose water first since it is not as concentrated. Will let you know how it turns out! Thanks for this awesome vintage recipe. So cool! Read More
