If your going to have cobbler, you must have ice cream. I found this in some old Cowboy Kitchen recipe papers. I am sure it was never served out on the trail, but at the bunk house often. If you are going to make your owe ice cream, do it right. The buttermilk makes it much richer.
Buttermilk Ice Cream
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 cups buttermilk
juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon corn syrup

1 teaspoon lime zest, grated
In a 8" or 10" dutch oven, combine the water and sugar, bring to a boil. Remove form heat and let cool, then refrigerate until chilled. Add the buttermilk, lime juice, corn syrup, salt, and zest. Freeze in an ice cream churn according to machine instructions.
Dick Stucki, made ice cream, and won the first World Champion Cook-off some 24-25 years ago.
I bet some of you didn't know WCCO was that old.
