Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream- Hinton Family Tradition!

I can almost type out this recipe from memory, I've made it so many times over the last 35 years.  Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream was on the menu for nearly every extended Hinton family gathering, as well as nearly every summer holiday barbecue in our family.  We've always made it in our old, large, ice and salt ice cream freezer. We just recently discovered that by cutting the recipe in half it fits perfectly in our smaller 2-quart Cuisinart ice cream freezer.  I've tried many ice cream recipes in this cold core freezer, but this is still our favorite(with Wendy's Frosty  being a close second.)  Remember, if you're using the newer, smaller freezer, you'll need to half this recipe:

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
4 eggs
2 1/2 cups sugar
7 cups milk
3 cups whipping cream
2 1/2 Tablespoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a very large mixing bowl, beat the eggs until light with a hand mixer.  Add the sugar gradually, beating until thick.  Add the remaining ingredients, beating well.  Pour into the ice cream freezer.  Makes 1 gallon.
