    I remember doing this in Kindergarden. I swear, the first warm day in Wisconsin I will be outside in the back yard making ice cream with my nephews!

    Used to do this when I was a kid,too, only we used a syrup bucket with a handle and turned it back and forth inside a washtub filled with ice and salt! Do you go as far back as me, Chet ?? lol !

    I remember this well! Also remember the crank ice cream churn. I remember I didn't mind at all having sore arms turning the crank. Ice Cream is my favorite dessert of all time. I make it even in the winter. Thanks for posting this one.
