    Homemade ice cream…Brings back warm childhood memories with family and friends. Warm summer evenings, helping Mom make the mixture and helping Dad turn the hand-crank freezer until my arm wore out. Looking back, special times I cherish now. Plus, I just REALLY LOVE ICE CREAM! 🙂

    I remember making homemade ice cream once when I was a very young little kid with a crank barrel, salt, ice, the works! It tasted like no other!

    For several summers now, my kids have enjoyed making ice cream on their own by mixing cream, vanilla extract, and a little sugar in baggies, then sticking those in bigger baggies filled with ice and salt. It takes a little while for it to set up, and their little arms must ache from all the shaking that it takes, but it always brings giggles and a chorus of praise form how good it tastes. I’m hoping these are the memories they take with them into adulthood. I know I treasure them. 🙂

    Summer always bring memories of family- picnics, beach BBQ’s and bonfires, 4-H and fairs, and especially Portuguese Festas!
