One of our favoRED things.....

Big Red Ice Cream! Cold, sweet, yummy and delicious! There is nothing better on a hot Summer day than a bowl of Big Red ice cream. We have been making this for at least 30 years in my family and it's still our favored. Don't know what Big Red is? It's kind of a red cream soda. Big Red is actually the brand name in Texas. I guess you could use a substitute, some people I know use Orange Crush and pineapples. That would never fly around here. Give it a try, here's the recipe.

Big Red Ice Cream
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
2 small pkgs frozen, sliced strawberries, thawed
1 (2 litre) bottle Big Red
Electric or hand crank ice cream maker, rock salt, ice
Open milk, pour it in the cylinder, add the strawberries to the milk, pour in Big Red to the fill line on the container. Start freezing. That's it! Enjoy! jt
