July 21st is National Ice Cream Day.
My family has made our own ice cream off and on for years. Here are some photos of one ice cream making event in 2005.
Daddy and Dan operate the machine with supervision from Mom.
This was taken in Tennessee and was the last time we used our “old fashioned” ice cream maker. Obviously, it is not the old crank handle kind. My parents now have a counter top ice cream maker that works much faster, though it makes a smaller amount and is only slightly less noisy than this old one was.
The fruit of their labors. (Mom’s kitchen in Tennessee.)
