Long time Ice Cream Journal readers know that we’re big fans of giving away prizes that allow people to make their own ice cream at home. Making your own favorite flavors, we believe, is one of the best ways to appreciate the ice cream-making process and all of the hard work that goes into creating those flavors you see on grocery store shelves.
Our next 12 Days of Turkey Hill prize keeps that lesson in mind with the vintage ice cream churn you see above. After 60 or 70 years, the churn is no longer usable (although the pieces are all there and the churn still churns), but it will make a very nice decorative item and conversation piece in your home.
And besides, considering how many batches of Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl this thing has created over the years, this churn has probably earned its retirement. But in which home will it retire?
