Big Batch Maple Ice Cream

Tonight we had a big Fourth of July party here at the house with a potluck dinner, swimming, bocce ball, and fantastic fireworks contributed by a pyromaniacal friend. Along with a chicken pasta salad, I made this new ice cream:

*Big Batch Maple Ice Cream*

In a medium saucepan, heat:

2 c. real maple syrup

Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in:

2 c. milk
2 c. half and half
4 c. whipping cream
1/2 t. salt
1 t. maple extract

Freeze as usual in freezer. When almost done, you can add as many broken pecan or walnut pieces as you wish. I made this this afternoon with pecans. Of course, I spent the first twenty minutes turning the ice cream freezer handle the wrong way so that *nothing was happening*. Fortunately, Clara came along and pointed out my error, then did the cranking for another twenty minutes, and it came out delicious.

Is this correct that there is no eggs in this ice cream? I've never seen a recipe without them. Thanks, I want to try this it sounds yummy!
