Remember the old-time church social, as Grandma's back yard picnic was highlighted by that creamy, cool and delicious dessert? Well, you can still do it... right in your own home, school or church. All you need is your favorite ice cream recipe, ice, rock salt and, of course, your White Mountain Hand Crank Ice Cream Maker! Enjoy smooth, creamy home made ice cream in 20-40 minutes depending on ingredients. Easy to use and clean up this unit includes a recipe and instruction book with hints and tested ice cream recipes to insure great tasting old fashioned ice cream every time.
For a century and a half, since a woman in New York invented the hand-crank freezer, making ice cream has been an American family value. Mom blended the ice cream mixture; Dad filled the maker's wooden tub with ice and rock salt to achieve the below-freezing temperature needed to produce smooth confections; kids clamored to turn the crank; and everyone happily consumed big bowls of ice cream as a reward. This family-bonding activity remains as vibrant today as it was through a century-and-a-half of "progress." With various ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sherbet recipes included, this old-fashioned White Mountain ice cream maker maintains the tradition. Only the use of modern stainless steel for the freezer can and dasher distinguishes this rugged maker from the one earlier generations enjoyed. And years from now it will still be used, knitting together a family's history. --Fred Brack
