Summertime Is Ice Cream Time

Nothing says summer like a big bowl of homemade ice cream.  In the days before electric ice cream freezers, how many  of us remember sitting under a shade tree on a hot summer day and taking out turn cranking the handle on a freezer of homemade ice cream? It always seemed to take forever for the ice cream to be ready to eat.

What was your favorite homemade ice cream as a child?  Good old vanilla, fresh peach ice cream, sweet strawberry, or rich chocolate?  Did you enjoy your ice cream in a big bowl or in a crisp cone?

Get out those cookbooks and recipes for some homemade ice cream.  Remember to pick up the chocolate or caramel sauce.  Don’t forget the sprinkles and toppings.  Spend some time this July cooling off with some refreshing ice cream.
