I know I don’t need to tell you summer has its hot breath on us. Well unless maybe you live in the Yukon! Here in Southwest Oklahoma it’s hot and the forecast is for more hot. I told Shannon there were two things I remembered about summer growing up: hot afternoons and cold homemade ice cream. I think everyone in town had an ice cream maker. On Mama’s old crank-style maker, one kid would have to sit on top while another one cranked on it. Vanilla was the staple blend most of the time, but we decided to change it up a bit and created a concoction that will chill them taste buds with a little creamy almond flavor with chunks of cherry. Now it’s time to get to crankin’ or break out the new fangled electric ice cream maker and let’s share some goodness!
