In 1744, a Scottish colonist described in his journal, & I quote, “…a Dessert treat…Among the Rarities of which is compos’d some fine Ice Cream which, with the Strawberries and Milk, eat most deliciously.”

But, in all this time, Klatchers, NOBODY has changed Mrs. Johnson’s design. Nope, guess she knew a good thing when she ‘patented’ her cylinder/dasher method which is still crankin’ out tubful’s o’ the good stuff today. So, who wants ice cream? Yummmmm!!…Oh, & cheers to summer! I’ll have a scoop o’ vanilla, please.  ☺
