There are many foods you can buy at the grocery store and also make at home — bread, beer (at some grocery stores), even pasta. In most cases, the store-bought version will be a little better (and a lot easier!) than what you can whip up yourself, but there’s just something nice about some warm, homemade bread, isn’t there?
Of course, you can also make ice cream at home. Even though Turkey Hill makes ice cream, we encourage fans to make their own ice cream at least once. We believe it helps you gain an understanding of the hard work that goes into making ice cream. Plus, it’s just a lot of fun! That’s the inspiration behind our eighth 12 Days of Ice Cream prize: the Cuisinart Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker.
The one-and-a-half quart ice cream and sorbet maker (it also makes frozen yogurt!) is fast — some recipes will take only 20 minutes. It also contains a cooling liquid within a double-insulated freezer bowl, which means you don’t need to use ice!
We’ll give this ice cream maker away to one commenter chosen at random from this blog entry (and another ice cream maker on our Facebook page!). We’ll also add some free Turkey Hill Ice Cream to the prize, just in case your homemade batch doesn’t turn out the way you had hoped. To enter, leave a comment with an answer to this question:
