My dad and I loved black walnut anything. Black walnuts taste very different than English walnuts so I created this one on his behalf. I like it best topped with caramel sauce or honey.

I was looking for a homemade version of Marble Slab's Black Walnut ice cream so naturally I chose to make this one first. I left out the Black Walnuts as I wanted a smooth texture without add-ins. The texture of the ice cream was good for a "no-cook" ice cream recipe. The flavor was somewhat lacking. I think if I make this one again I will double the amount of Black Walnut extract. Read More

Excellent! Like all uncooked non-custard ice creams it is best eaten within hours of making it. But when you have an ice cream freezer and the recipe is this easy you can easily make small batches every night if you want to. This recipe fed six eager people with a couple of bowls for left-overs. Read More

Made a double recipe this afternoon with my Dad. So nostalgic haven't had this in many years. We added extra black walnut extract before freezing - on the advice of another reviewer and I think they were right. After freezing I thought it needed a little more sugar (used powdered)and that salt would really improve the flavor. We liked it much better after the additions and it was wonderful. Thanks.

awesome. quik and easy and great flavor. made batch with almond milk too. best ice milk ever! be sure to toast those nuts before freezing them! for my machine, i made half recipe/pint and added 2 Tblsp of carton ready whole EGG for extra protein and to not have to heat custard. this is a way to give you quik gelato with the cream/milk base. was still tasty with nut milk too.

I made this recipe and it was delicious. The only changes I made was instead of lite cream I uses heavy whipping cream and used vanilla extract in place of black walnut extract because I couldn't find it. Read More
