I have finally completed the silver flatware set I started before I was married. It coincides with the grandkids coming this weekend. So what’s the connection?
This P31 grandmother plans to have them help make ice cream, using the attachment to my KitchenAid mixer, and afterwards, enjoy it with ice cream spoons.
What, you may ask, is an ice cream spoon? I suppose in days gone by everyone knew, but today’s modern world has lost some of the customs of yesteryear.
The spoon on the right is an ice cream spoon; one the left is a regular teaspoon. The rounded shape of the ice cream spoon is designed to allow it to be more easily scooped, and to fit the mouth better. And apparently a metal spoon is the best type to eat ice cream with.
So now you know! We’ll be crushing candy canes into French Vanilla to create a minty Christmas ice cream, yum!
