100 Year Old Family Recipe For Ice Cream

I like to write about blockchains, decentralization, technology and the like, but once in a while I enjoying changing things up and instead I gin up a post about something light, fun and food related.

Today I bring you a 100 year old recipe taught to me by my grandmother. Her mother passed this recipe down to her. Being this recipe was first made before refrigeration, it was only available to my ancestors as a winter treat after the first snow / ice of the season formed on the family home in Nebraska and later Minnesota. But now you can enjoy it any time : )

I hope you get to make a batch some day. Enjoy.
