The weather is beautiful and the warm front is here to stay. It’s the time of ice cream and ice desserts in unlimited quantity.
Make your own ice cream
Making ice cream may be quite challenging for all home cooks. They comprise milk, cream, eggs, and other ingredients, depending on a flavor. But the preparation of homemade ice cream may be also easy. You just need the ingredients, a blender and a cooler. With just a hint of imagination you can create brand new flavors and than agree on the fact that these are the best ice cream you’ve ever tired.
Ice cream types
Not everyone knows that there are 5 types of ice cream: milk ices, ice cream, fruit ices, cassata, and sorbets. Milk ices and ice cream differ with the amount of cream used for their production. Fruit ices are made of a watery carbohydrate solution and fruit. Cassata are always handmade, and comprise a mix of 3 types of ices (milk, cream, and fruit ones) with some whipped cream. Sorbets are a type of puree (the so-called fondant) made of cooked fruit juice with sugar. And, sorbets are actually the most caloric!
Where to find the best ice cream?
New ice cream shops and parlors open every year. There are more and more places where they serve natural ice cream - with no preservatives and taste improvers. Such an ice cream shop, Polish Lody, opened by two young Wroclaw citizens, is very successful.
