Momma Told Me: Your dad and his machines!
For as far back as I can remember, from the first 'da-da,' my father was 'the ice cream man.'
Well, not literally a man who drives around in an ice cream truck, of a cone mascot at a Foster's Freeze; no, he has worked for a company called Taylor Freezers for over 25 years. There have been times where our family has run into old acquaintances and we've had to clarify what that meant. One such hilarious occasion had a friend of my mothers thinking my father was involved in cryogenics. No, Taylor Freezers does not deal in people freezers, but actually a variety of restaurant food-service equipment ranging from frozen beverage machines to 'Quarter Pounder' grills. It is my father's job, as a service technician, to travel a very broad service area visiting establishments of an equally wide range, solving a variety of mechanical puzzles.
Big Boss 2 QT Ice Cream machine. The freedom to control the type of dairy, and the diverse flavors is as fascinating as taking a tour of the Ben and Jerry's facility, itself. And don't get me started on the best part- licking the quickly melting, creamy, mixture of of the agitator blade, much like Momma's mixer blades when baking! This is one appliance every home can afford and should have whether it's for a last minute 2-ingredient sorbet, or a beloved slow churn family recipe.
Big Boss 2.5 Qt, come with a 'base' recipe book, that is great to get started. You can also find a wealth of recipes online, and several books dedicated to home made ice cream recipes. I like to find a favorite base and work on modifying it from there. If you find a great vanilla, it really is nothing but fun from there on out- the sky is the limit! We've already enjoyed several successful batches of homemade ice cream with our Big Boss unit, what would you make first with yous?
