Ice Cream Ripple

Today of course commercial ice cream makers produce all manner of exotic flavors and combinations of ice cream to delight our palates. Yet many of us who enjoyed our childhood in the 60s remember with fondness the simple Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream when it first became available. I was reminiscing about this recently and decided to have a go at rippling my own homemade ice cream. It was great fun and not only tasted great but it made me feel like a child again!

There are 2 different ways you can do this and my web page ice cream rippling gives the details.

You also need to think about what sauce to ripple the ice cream with. Again, there's so many to choose from. After raspberry sauce (naturally!) my favorites are strawberry, toffee, chocolate and last but not least maple syrup. If you want to make your own sauce try my toffee sauce recipe (see bottom of web page link).

Don't forget, it's still National Ice Cream Month so there's no need to look for an excuse to make your own homemade ice cream - especially if you've never rippled before!

National Ice Cream Day Is Here!

Yes, it's finally here - Sunday 15 July 2007 and National Ice Cream Day. Whatever you're planning to do today, try and join in the celebration of all things ice cream. Here are a few ideas that might just make your day that bit extra special ....

Let's not forget people less fortunate too - like those who are in hospital today. May ice cream be on the menu for you to enjoy as well. My son got out of hospital a couple of days ago and whilst he was there ice cream was on the menu every single day! The nurses told me how it's always a winner with children, bringing smiles to young faces when they've been through a rough time.

Thank you President Reagan for recognizing the value of ice cream beyond being just a food. It's much, much more than that!
