It’s fun to be a little decadent once in a while, isn’t it? So what does cold, velvety vanilla ice cream sound like?

How about a delicious chocolate ice cream? Maybe a sweet peach ice cream with a raspberry swirl or a creamy espresso with melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chunks?

It sounds good ?

Well you’re in luck, because this ice cream is easily made at home, with very few ingredients, and without an ice cream maker. And this basic recipe has six delicious variations.

If you’re limiting your sugar and fat intake, you might want to look the other way. This treat is not meant to be eaten every day, but it can make any day a special occasion.

When you combine sweetened condensed milk with whipped cream, something magical happens.

We’re starting with a vanilla ice cream base, which you’ll incorporate additional ingredients into as desired to create the variations below.

Measurements are flexible. Use this as a starting point, adjusting the recipe until it speaks or sings to your taste buds.

You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to make it because the best time for ice cream is always.

easy ice cream

Servings: 8

Ingredients

2 cups heavy whipped cream

1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of table salt

Procedure

In a mixer, whip the cream until a soft peak forms, then scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl and continue to mix until stiff peaks form.

Using a spatula, gradually incorporate the sweetened condensed milk, adding the vanilla and salt and mix gently.

Give it another swirl in the blender (it will be rather stiff at this point), scraping down the sides as needed.

Pour the mixture into a loaf pan (8 1/2 by 4 1/2) or a cake pan (8 by 8 inches) and freeze for 6 hours or overnight. Store, freeze, covered, for up to one week. So !

If you don’t have a mixer, you can use a stand mixer or hand mixer. I find that using a mixer whips less air into the mixture resulting in creamier ice cream.

Using it as a beautiful blank canvas, the variations are only limited by your imagination.

Some ingredients are best added when mixing the mixture of cream and sweetened condensed milk. You will add more when the ice cream is partially frozen, after 2 to 3 hours in the freezer, for an even distribution.

Variants

Milk chocolate — Decrease the vanilla to 1 teaspoon and add 6 ounces of melted milk chocolate chips to the room temperature cream mixture.

Espresso — When mixing the base, add 2-3 tablespoons of espresso powder, depending on how strong you want your coffee to be. When partially frozen, stir in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips.

S’mores — For semi-frozen ice cream, combine 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/2 cup mini marshmallows, 1/2 cup graham cracker pieces.

Lime tart — Omit the vanilla and add 1/2 cup frozen lemonade concentrate with the condensed milk. When semi-frozen, stir in 1/2 cup broken graham cracker pieces.

peanut butter cup — Add 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter to cream mixture and add 1/2 cup coarsely chopped peanut butter candy before freezing.

Peach Melba — Using a can (15.25 ounces) of peaches, drain and reserve the juice for another purpose. Puree about 1 cup of peaches to mix with the cream mixture. Chop remaining peaches to add when semi-frozen. When adding the chopped peaches, top the ice cream with 1/2 cup raspberry jam or fresh raspberries, and use a knife to swirl the jam into the ice cream.

During the pandemic, many started small businesses, but few were 12 years old. Kaya Novack, a local teenage girl from Santa Clarita, started her small business, Kaya’s Creameryin 2021.

Stuck in a pandemic at just 11 years old, Kaya quickly fell into the abyss of boredom. She eventually came across an online course where you could pay $12 to learn how to make mochi.

After just one class, she thought, “I can do this,” and started offering her own online Zoom classes to teach others how to make mochi. His classes were priced at $10 to attend and would have four to 10 people in attendance.

This form of ice cream making was just the beginning.

Kaya and her family started gathering around their Cuisinart ice cream maker, adding various traditional ice cream toppings. They packaged their creations and gave them away to friends and family.

Kaya didn’t just cure her boredom. She had sparked a passion.

A few courteous deposits got more and more people asking for more ice cream. Seeing that there was a demand for her product, she decided to turn this boredom remedy into a small business.

“I think she thought I was kidding,” Kaya said after approaching her mother, Larie Novack, with the idea.

In the summer of 2021, Kaya officially launched Kaya’s Creamery.

Larie posted Kaya’s small business on her neighborhood Facebook page and people started pouring in with orders.

“At first I was a little confused because maybe people just buy it because they want to be nice and support someone,” Kaya said. “But after more and more people started ordering it and getting second orders, I was a little nervous. But after a while it was really good to do something that people love .

Demand for Kaya’s Creamery slowly spiraled out of control as more people were exposed to its ice cream. Kaya’s ice cream was even shared on a larger Facebook page for local foodies.

People weren’t just ordering a pint or two of ice cream, they started ordering 20 to 40 for their events.

“She got such a big order one day, I had to cook it all in the freezer,” Larie said.

Kaya’s Creamery started out as the Novack family’s only freezer. Now it’s grown so big that the Novacks have had to buy two more freezers to keep up with the small business’s demand.

Constantly creating ice cream has also led Kaya to constantly create new flavors, fueling her sense of creativity that she says she has always had.

“I’ve always loved creating things,” Kaya said. “When I was 8, I had a business where I made lip balms. I’ve always loved selling things and creating things.

Some of Kaya’s flavors include Stroopwillfall in love, Chocolate Covered Banana, Blue’s Lemon Berry Pie, Birthday Cake Surprise, Sean’s S’mores, Sarah’s Red Velvet Runway and many more. ‘others.

Her flavors come from customer requests, and she will then name the flavor after them. Others come from her own mind, always thinking about what she can do next.

“We’ll eat something, it’s not necessarily ice cream, and we’ll be like, ‘That would be good for ice cream,'” Kaya said.

On August 4, Kaya took on her biggest challenge yet: serving as a caterer at a food truck event.

Kaya said she was extremely nervous at the start of the event. She worried that no one would buy her ice cream, and being a 10-by-10-foot pop-up tent next to an ice cream food truck didn’t help calm her nerves.

She was successful and sold over 150 of her 200 ice creams that she brought for the event. She also received donations for her charity, A ball of love.

Kaya started her charity as a way to give back to her community in the best way she knew how, with ice cream.

“When I started the business last year, I always knew I wanted to get into charity somehow,” Kaya said.

After years and years of watching her family give back and making shelter dog blankets herself, that kindness has sunk into her heart.

“My family and my school have always made it very important to give back to charity,” Kaya said.

With the donations she receives and some extra profits from the small business, Kaya donates her ice cream to underprivileged families. She believes that “every child deserves love and ice cream”.

Kaya worked with Family promise and Bridge to the house, and hopes to expand her charitable work even further in the future.

Her passion for giving back and ice cream may be the two driving factors behind small business, but she hopes to use her small business as a way to fulfill two of her dreams: paying for her college education and traveling across the country.

Although Kaya isn’t quite sure where she wants to go to college or what she wants to study, she does know that one day she’ll want to take a cross-country road trip with some friends.

Those interested in shopping at Kaya’s Creamery can direct message the company on Instagram, @kayas_creamery. To inquire about donating to A Scoop of Love, you can direct message @a_scoop_of_love_charity on Instagram for more information.

Did you know that almost every ice cream recipe published in the past 50 years contains egg yolks? serious eating explains that it’s because these little yellow powerhouses contain a host of properties that provide flavor, stability and texture to ice cream – which can be a major benefit when you’re making the dessert at home and trying to cope with high temperatures. quality store-bought versions.

Let’s start with that last factor: texture. According to Serious Eats, egg yolks are full of fat and protein, which help thicken ice cream in their own way. Fat freezes more gently than water, helping ice cream stay creamy after freezing, and egg protein thickens into a gel during cooking, which is why we mix the yolks into the ice cream base hot – as well as in those of puddings, flans and curds.

As noted The boss is working, the magic of egg yolks doesn’t stop there: they’re also extremely effective emulsifiers, binding the fat in an ice cream base to the water in it and helping to provide a creamy, lush texture. . And there’s more: Serious Eats writes that egg yolks bring delicious flavor and wonderful color to ice cream with their dark yellow hue.

So if you haven’t tried incorporating them into your homemade ice cream, it might be time to get yourself a dozen eggs.

Homemade Ice Cream at Penn Township Fire Company Fair Keeps Visitors Unwind During Summer | Newville https://ab-sweets.info/homemade-ice-cream-at-penn-township-fire-company-fair-keeps-visitors-unwind-during-summer-newville/ Mon, 08 Aug 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://ab-sweets.info/homemade-ice-cream-at-penn-township-fire-company-fair-keeps-visitors-unwind-during-summer-newville/ Thursday morning saw a flurry of activity at Penn Township Volunteer Fire Companyalthough their annual fire fair did not start until 5 p.m. Dozens of volunteers were at work at the fire station at 1750 Pine Road in Newville, preparing what could arguably be considered the biggest attraction of the fair: the food.

Thursday morning saw a flurry of activity at Penn Township Volunteer Fire Companyalthough their annual fire fair did not start until 5 p.m.

Dozens of volunteers were at work at the fire station at 1750 Pine Road in Newville, preparing what could arguably be considered the biggest attraction of the fair: the food.

Operations were well underway in the corn soup and barbecue departments around 9 a.m. Thursday, with sausages and fries on deck.

According to fire company chairman John Wardle, the three-day fair due to run until Saturday takes an “army” of 300 volunteers, three weeks of set-up and a week of dismantling to become a reality.

“The fair is about the Penn Township community, the fair is about the people,” Wardle said. “We are here to serve the community, that is our purpose, whether it is for lives, goods and services or to provide a community atmosphere and a community place where people can come and have weddings, dinners, parties. banquets and all that sort of thing. ”

People also read…

It’s also the department’s biggest fundraiser of the year, providing money to run the department, as well as buy a new fire truck to better serve the needs of the community, said Wardle.

The fair features a variety of attractions, including Kiddie Land, a train exhibit, local 4-H projects and a fireworks show to end the event at 10 p.m. Saturday.

It’s also well known for something else: ice cream.

Volunteers arrived at the department at 7 a.m. Thursday to begin producing the homemade treat.

“If we’re lucky we’ll be done around 1 p.m.,” Wardle said. “Then we freeze it and it’s ready to dip tonight. [Thursday] at 5 p.m…. and then we’ll dive until 10 or 11 a.m., and then tomorrow we’ll start again.

Each day, the treat is prepared fresh and served the day it is prepared through what Wardle described as a “large” and “streamlined” operation to produce the 1,000 gallons needed for the event.

A team is working inside the department building to mix up what Wardle described as “the secret recipe” that has been passed down in families for years. Volunteers then add one of five flavors: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, pineapple or raspberry. The ice cream is then mixed in a 20-quart container before being taken outside and passed to the next group.

Once outside, the ice cream is placed in one of six mixers and churned for approximately 20 minutes. Water and salt are also added in this process to freeze the treat. Wardle said it was then transferred to three-gallon containers and frozen for about six hours before being transferred to freezers under the company pavilion for soaking crews to serve from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Fairgoers can purchase the ice cream for $3 per scoop, though Wardle said many attendees choose to get three scoops and others leave donations.


"All fire companies are in the same boat:" Penn Township Volunteer Fire Company seeks funds and volunteers

If they really, really love ice cream, attendees can sign up to participate in the fair’s annual Ice Cream Tasting Contest, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Participants receive five scoops of homemade ice cream from the fair and the first person to finish is declared the winner. Wardle said the first people to register for the fair can compete for a chance to take the title and win a prize.

“I’m looking for eight people who want to eat ice cream quickly,” he said. “There is a kind of secrecy in there; come to the contest and you will find out what it is.

After 51 years of experience with the fair, it’s no surprise that Wardle knows the secret to the competition’s success, despite saying he’s one of hundreds who have been involved with the fair for decades.

“My father has been here for 50 years,” he said. “A lot of families take care of certain events…and that’s their way of giving back. It’s their donation to the community, and then we hope people will come and support us.

For Wardle, it always comes down to the people.

“They know they can come, meet their friends, talk, socialize, eat, eat a plate of ice cream, go back and have another plate of ice cream, whatever, and so they can enjoy the people they see. at the fair. ,” he said. “They come to the fair to see the people.”

After all, food, games and ice cream aside, it’s the people, Wardle said, that make the event “a real family community fair.”

Zara Mathir, 20 months, enjoys homemade Andias ice cream in Cary, North Carolina on Tuesday, August 2, 2022.

The results are in: Andia’s Homemade Ice Cream is the winner of The News & Observer Triangle Ice Cream Break.

The family-run local ice cream shop, with two stores in Cary, beat finalists Maple View Ice Cream in Hillsborough and FRESH Local Ice Cream, with locations in Raleigh, Cary and Apex. He also knocked out familiar favorites like Two Roosters, Howling Cow Creamery and Goodberry’s earlier in the installment.

“I’m more than honored,” said co-founder Andia Xouris. “It tells me that Raleigh really loves Andia, which is such an honor.”

Here’s everything you need to know about the Triangle’s favorite homemade ice cream shop.

Pink pistachio ice cream and baklava

Best known for its Instagrammable monster shakes (think: mason jars filled with scoops of creamy, blended ice cream and brimming with toppings, sauces, and sometimes whole donuts or slices of cake), Andia’s is certainly trending with its offerings. of ice cream. It serves up flights, burnt ice cream and other decadent seasonal specialties just waiting to be devoured and photographed for social media.

Even still, Andia is steeped in a family history and guiding values ​​of community and “parea”, Greek for good company and friendship.

Growing up in Cyprus, Greece, Andia Xouris grew up on rose ice cream and was imbued with the idea of ​​’parea’. It’s a tradition that drives Andia’s ethos today, and one that her husband and co-founder George Xouris also grew up with in his own traditional Greek family.

The timeline drawn on the walls of both stores begins in 1920, the year George’s grandfather immigrated from Greece and later started working at an ice cream parlor in Astoria, New York. The family heirloom ice cream scoop, passed down from George’s grandfather, hangs in a frame.

Sixty years later, Andia immigrated with her parents. Andia’s father started his own food distribution business from scratch and passed that entrepreneurial spirit on to his daughter.

The first flavor on the menu is baklava, a tribute to the family’s Greek heritage. Pink pistachio, Andia’s favorite flavor, pays homage to the ice cream of her childhood. The store recently introduced an extra virgin olive oil flavor, alongside staples like peanut butter fudge and cake batter.

And the store’s goal to stand out, beyond its super-premium artisanal ice cream and customer experience, is part of that tradition of family and friends coming together over food. The motto of the shop is “picked up with love”.

“That’s who we think we are as people,” Andia said. “I always want to have this comfortable store. I never want a cold environment. I want people to know they are welcome here.

Creation of Andia

Andia and George had wanted to get into the ice cream business for a long time.

Before moving to North Carolina, which enjoys better ice cream weather and a lower cost of starting a small business, the family lived in New Jersey, where they regularly frequented an ice cream shop without meet after sports matches.

Andia was sitting with her family in the back of a truck parked near the store, holding dripping ice cream cones, and she saw the power of ice cream to spark happiness and bring people together.

RAL_080222_amk_andias04.JPG

After taking many courses in making frozen desserts, Andia and George discovered that using ice cream was the way they could be the most creative.

“It’s not a trend that comes and goes. Everyone loves a good scoop of ice cream,” Andia said. “You can create all kinds of amazing flavors when you do this with ice cream. For me, it helps me say what I feel, what’s trending for me in my own life.

Andia and George launched The Freezing Pointe, an ice cream wholesaler and caterer for hotels, restaurants, and corporate and private events, in 2014.

But something didn’t seem quite right to the Xourises – their company logo and name didn’t seem to represent them or their family values. And besides, people kept asking where they could buy their ice cream for themselves.

So Andia and George sat down with their two children – Alyssa, who is Andia’s Director of Retail Operations, and Alex, who previously worked for the company and is now on her way to the Culinary Institute of America – and have decided to change their name and change to a retail store. Thus, in 2016, Andia’s Homemade Ice Cream was born.

“Everyone was supporting us”

The first two years of opening meant 80-hour work weeks and dinner at 11:30 p.m. every night for Andia and George, who, before quitting their previous job, helped make and deliver ice cream on the weekends.

Starting full-time work together was a dream. “It was 25 years in the making of our marriage,” Andia said.

The boutique’s first location on Green Level Church Road recently celebrated its fifth anniversary with a special flavor of cake batter, free scoops and more. The second location on Ryan Road comes on two years later this month.

Both locations have developed into cult neighborhoods, with visitors coming all the way from Fayetteville, Winston-Salem and Wilmington to sample Andia’s super premium ice cream.

When Andia’s opened its first outlet, the queue was at the bottom of the parking lot. Andia remembers sitting on her side and crying at the sight.

“I couldn’t believe people wanted to come and try our ice cream. It was surreal,” she said.

When COVID-19 hit, Andia and George closed the store and overnight the family turned to ice cream deliveries. Every Tuesday at 8 p.m., they restocked their online store. By 8:30 p.m., Andia said, they would be sold out of thousands of liters of ice cream, which the family then personally delivered door-to-door.

“Everyone was supporting us,” Andia said. Families who ordered ice cream put up signs and drawings on their front door thanking the Xourises for the ice cream.

“It’s really our community that has helped us thrive in COVID,” she added. “What a blessing to think that we were able to not only survive, but thrive and come back even stronger.”

The family hopes to open a third store in Raleigh soon.

You can visit Andia’s Homemade Ice Cream at 10120 Green Level Church Rd, #208 or 1008 Ryan Rd, both in Cary.

It’s been a miserably hot summer. One of the best ways to cool off is with a tasty ice cream, but one of America’s favorite frozen treats is soon to be discontinued. A local candy store decided to fill the void for many ice cream lovers.

There’s a place where Hudson Valley residents can get one of their favorite frozen treats.

So there are just under 1,000 left in the Klondike? It will probably be difficult to get one yourself. The Choco Taco had a cult following. It was a popular choice for customers at the gas station freezer or outside the ice cream truck.

While you might not be able to get a real Choco Taco, you can at least get a waffle ice cream taco here in the Hudson Valley.

The Kingston Candy Bar is never short of creative ideas. The store located in Kingston, New York now offers homemade frozen tacos. They look bigger, better and even tastier.

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio – A new Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream Shop is opening in Mayfield Heights. And according to the store owner, future customers can hardly wait.

“I get calls every day asking when are we going to open,” owner Jennifer Leskovac said. “People are saying they’re tired of driving to Twinsburg and Northfield (the closest Handel locations) and want to know when we’re opening.”

To all ice cream lovers, here’s the answer: the big day is coming Thursday (August 4th).

Handel’s will hold its grand opening celebration at 1249 SOM Center Road in Mayfield Heights. That day — and all seven days of each week — Handel’s will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at the Mayfield Heights Town Center mall, which also recently hosted Crumbled cookies and is home to, among other businesses, Five Guys.

To find Handel, look for the red, white, and blue awning.

The first 50 customers who make purchases on Thursday will receive a free ice cream cone once a week for the following year.

Leskovac grew up in Boardman, near Youngstown, and for this reason she grew up with Handel’s, which Alice Handel founded in 1945 in Youngstown. Today, the franchise is growing rapidly, with ice cream parlors in 10 states and many more to come.

What makes Handel special?

“It’s homemade ice cream that we make every day,” Leskovac said. “We have 48 flavors. I think it’s the best ice cream in the world.

Leskovac said the store will always have 48 flavors, 28 of which will change monthly or sometimes on shorter notice.

When asked to highlight some of the best and most unique flavors, she mentioned Graham’s Central Station, which features ice cream and graham cracker flavored chunks, with a chocolate ripple; salted caramel truffle; and the new coconut caramel delight.

“We have a lot of great flavors,” she said. “In Youngstown, the number one flavor is chocolate pecans, with salted pecans. Here (in Mayfield Heights), it might be something different.

“This month we have two special flavors: peach and pineapple upside-down cake.”

“We have sherbet and sherbet,” said Leskovac, who like her husband and co-owner, John, also works as a nurse anesthetist.

“And, we have sundaes; Hurricanes (ice cream and mixed toppings); brownie and banana sundaes; Dogsters (peanut butter and mint ice cream for dogs); milkshakes; Handel Pops (chocolate, vanilla or mint chocolate chip ice cream dipped in chocolate); waffle cones and waffle bowls; and pints and pints.

The Mayfield Heights Handel’s will employ 20 to 30 people; Leskovac said she is still looking for assistant shift supervisors.

Handel customers can also be served through DoorDash.

Forget broccoli and spinach for today – here’s the superfood everyone loves to eat!

The juicy pink smile of a slice of watermelon (one cup diced) is actually a 92% water thirst quencher. More than in a banana, its richness in potassium also makes it a good preventative against heatstroke.

Plus, it contains a giant dose of glutathione to deter free radicals and boost the immune system.

Watermelon is second only to tomato as a key source of lycopene, a cancer-fighting antioxidant, and it’s also high in vitamin C.

This superfood has as much fiber as a slice of whole-wheat bread and also contains vitamin A, thiamin and magnesium, and all for just over 50 calories per cup.

In fact, it’s enough to know that you can eat this treat at any time and feel good doing it.

Selection: Look for one with a brown stem attached. Hit the center to see if it makes a good sound. It means it is ripe.

Storage: Uncut watermelons can be stored unrefrigerated for three to four days. After cutting, cover and refrigerate remaining pieces.

For a refreshing thirst quencher, puree with apple and lemon juice, or freeze this puree for popsicles.

Although we don’t recommend eating them, watermelon seeds are a popular remedy for high blood pressure. The seeds contain the compound cucurbocitrin, which helps dilate capillaries and stimulate kidney function – key mechanisms for lowering blood pressure.

Is there anything more delicious than late summer watermelon, ripened under the scorching sun until juicy and fragrant?

Not really, and when you find yourself wilting in the late summer heat, a cold watermelon agua fresca or ice cold watermelon slush is perfect to help you cool down and relax. Adults and kids alike will love them, and it’s easy to add your own twist with additional flavorings or cantaloupe instead of watermelon.

Watermelon Agua Fresca
Ingredients:
4 cups cubed seeded watermelon
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup white sugar (or to taste)
1 lime
24 fresh mint leaves
ice

Combine watermelon and water in a blender and puree until smooth. Add sugar to taste. Cut the lime into small wedges (you will need about 8), then place one wedge in each serving glass and three mint leaves. Mash with a cocktail muddler (a wooden spoon handle also works), then add ice. Pour the agua fresca over the ice, stir, then serve.

Watermelon slush
4 cups cubed seeded ripe watermelon (188 calories)
2 tablespoons of sugar (32 calories)
1 tablespoon lime juice (30 calories)
About 3 cups of ice cream

Mix fruit, melon, sugar and juice until liquid. Add ice and continue blending until the liquid reaches a slush consistency.

In the whole mix, there are about 250 calories.
