Winter Ice Cream

Winter is as good a time as any for homemade ice cream - it's surprising but many people eat just as much ice cream in cold weather as they do in summer!

I was recently walking by a lake, all wrapped up in warm coat with hat, gloves and a pair of warm stout walking boots. I stopped at the lakeside cafe and found they were not only selling hot take-away drinks but ice cream as well! In fact, they had a special counter and display just for ice cream. I knew it was a popular place for ice cream in the summer months but had never seen a queue for it in winter - and there it was, a queue of adults and children all waiting patiently to buy their ice cream cone.

The most popular flavour they bought? Vanilla ice cream - of course :)
