What's so great about July?
It's Ice Cream Month!
I can't think of a better way to transition from celebrating
all things dairy during June Dairy Month to enjoying
a variety of very dairy ice cream flavors.
According to The History of Ice Cream
"the first official account of ice cream in America comes from a letter
written in 1744 by a guest of Maryland Governor William Bladen.
Manufacturing of ice cream became an industry in 1851 by a
Baltimore milk dealer named Jacob Fussell. Like other American
industries, ice cream production increased because of technological
innovations, including steam power , mechanical refrigeration,
the homogenizer, electric power and motors, packing machines,
and new freezing processes and equipment.
Today's total frozen dairy annual production in the
United States is more than 1.6 billion gallons."
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
