National Ice Cream Day
It’s National Ice Cream Day. There are a ton of food holidays in December and I’m celebrating the important ones: cookies, brownies and ice cream.
I’m a newer to making ice cream with some disastrous past attempts (like the time I forgot to freeze the bowl of the ice cream maker or the time I used skim and had a giant, white ice cube). The key is heavy cream and whole milk; increased fat content keeps ice cream scoopable because homemade stuff doesn’t have commercial chemicals. Find an easy recipe and buy a decent ice cream maker. Freeze the bowl for 24 hours and you’re good to go.
Expect more ice cream recipes in the coming year. Happy National Ice Cream Day!
