Homemade Ice Cream!!

Being the ice cream junkie that I am, I have always wanted to make my own ice cream. That being said, I don't have an ice cream maker (yet). In the mean time, I was determined to find a way to make it work without having a machine. I knew it would be a lot of effort but just made the excuse that it would taste better if I worked extra hard for it...
That wasn't necessarily the case...

Should read "cantaloupe" oops!
Boiling the cream and sugar
Whisk egg yolks
Puree and strained cantaloupe juice
Tempered egg yolks and cream mixture
Added cantaloupe puree to mixture
Poured in shallow baking pan to freeze for 30min, transfer
to bowl and mix,  freeze, repeat until desired consistency is reached. 
The finished product. I stopped mixing it after about 6 hours to go 
to bed, but this obviously needed more mixing. However it TASTES great!!
