Butter Pecan is my favorite ice cream...though I never met an ice cream I did not like...but this particular flavor speaks to me everytime it crosses over my lips...rich undertones of the earthy buttery nut and vanilla flavored cream...

2 cups chopped pecans
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 quarts milk
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 (12oz.) cans evaporated milk
2 (3.4oz) packages vanilla instant pudding mix

Saute pecans in butter in a large skillet 3 to 5 minutes or until toasted. Set aside to cool.

Combine remaining ingredients, stiring well with a wire whisk. Pout mixture into freezer container of a 1 1/2 to 2 gallon hand-turned or electric freezer. Freeze 10 minutes or until ice cream begins to thicken. Remove dasher, add pecans. Return dasher; freeze according to manufacturers instructions. Pack freezer with additional ice and rock salt, and let stand for 1 hour before serving.
Yield: 1 gallon
