With little skill, surprisingly few ingredients, and even the most unsophisticated of ice-cream makers, you can make the scrumptious ice creams that have made Ben & Jerry's an American legend.
Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book tells fans the story behind the company and the two men who built it-from their first meeting in 7th-grade gym class (they were already the two widest kids on the field) to their "graduation" from a $5.00 ice-cream-making correspondence course to their first ice-cream shop in a renovated gas station.
But the best part comes next. Dastardly Mash, featuring nuts, raisins, and hunks of chocolate. The celebrated Heath Bar Crunch. New York Super Fudge Chunk. Oreo Mint. In addition to Ben & Jerry's 11 greatest hits, here are recipes for ice creams made with fresh fruit, with chocolate, with candies and cookies, and recipes for sorbets, sundaes, and baked goods. The 90-plus authentic recipes are spiced with Lyn Severance's bright, quirky, full-color illustrations. Over 383,000 copies in print.

Comments about Ben and Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book:
OK, so I was expecting a bit more. The book is filled with cartoon pictures of product - not photos.
The ice cream is made in the American style - no cooking required. (ie you mix eggs and cream and milk then freeze)
Most of the recipes are about what big chunks of produce you can add to make the ice cream taste better.
It's great if you want some Ben and Jerry style ice cream, but many of the actual ice cream recipes are vanilla, with chunks of things added.
Its a fun read, with colourful comic puictures, but not exactly gourmet.
