As we wrap up our week of ice cream we wanted to give you a few things we love for making this wonderful treat. Memories come flooding back about summers of our youth. Many a summer was spent gathering up supplies to make our fresh churned ice cream. Boring but was always the favorite, vanilla. Sometimes adding miniature chocolate chips.
It was never super hard and would melt very fast on a hot summer day. It always seemed at the time to take forever to make it, adding the crushed ice around the outside of the aluminum freezer. Adding rock salt to help it melt and then adding more.
The first bite was so satisfying and worth every minute of the time it took to make it. This first item reminds me so much of the summers when my daddy would say, ‘Let’s make some ice cream.”
We found this on Wayfair. There are many newer and less labor intensive models to choose from but this reminds me of what we used growing up. This is sure to add many wonderful memories for you and your family.
If you need inspiration about what flavor of ice cream to start with, we would like to suggest a few books on ice cream.
Not only are the photos fun to look at but the recipes are delicious as well!
If you want to jazz up your homemade ice cream offerings you can get fancy with what you serve it in. We love pretzel cones. The Chocolate Stout Ice Cream would be so wonderful in these cones.
There are so many special memories about ice cream for us. I can remember visiting grandpa and him making peppermint ice cream. He would take the giant candy canes and smash bits of it to add to the sweet vanilla cream. I haven’t had anything like it since. We would love to hear about your ice cream memories.
