It is going to be 90 degrees this weekend. Hot, HOT! Even though it’s not officially summer—it’s summer, ya’ll!
We got a White Mountain Ice Cream Maker a couple years ago and love making homemade ice cream. It’s something fun Jacobs and I can do together. I make the cream and Jacobs handles the freezing. We both lick the dasher.
Vanilla, cookies and cream, and banana are just a couple of the flavors we’ve made. A couple weeks ago, it was the Strawberry Festival at The Franklin Farmers’ Market. I bought the most beautiful strawberries so we decided to make strawberry ice cream. It was just as delicious as it was beautiful.
