Scald 1 cup milk with 1 teaspoon gelatin and add slowly to 3 egg yolks mixed with 1/4 cup sugar and a few grains salt. Return to double boiler and stir constantly until coating is formed on the spoon. Strain and cool. Put 1/3 cup sugar in frying pan and stir until melted and slightly brown. Add 1/3 cup walnut meats, finely chopped and turn mixture into a slightly buttered pan. When cold put through food chopper, add to custard, then add 1/2 pint cream beaten stiff and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Freeze. Other nuts may be used in place of walnuts.

To make a rich fruit ice cream omit the walnuts, use sugar without melting it and add to the mixture, dates or prunes cut in pieces, or any desired fresh or canned fruit, allowing one cup or less of fruit. Use less sugar if fruit is very sweet.
