Today is National Ice Cream Day! Let’s celebrate by eating “leftover” ice cream before it forms ice crystals. Not that there is really ever leftover ice cream, more like eaten and to be eaten. But it is a good day to sort out the freezer, you might find a container with a little left inside. If kept constantly frozen at 0°F opened ice cream will still have a good quality for about two months. But let’s be honest, does it ever really last that long?
While we are on the topic of National Ice Cream Day, let’s clear the cabinets of these leftovers too:
- stale ice cream cones
- hot fudge topping
- strawberry sauce
- caramel drizzle
- other sundae toppings
- out-of-date cherries
- long lost sprinkles (these are my favorite jimmies as my grandmother used to call them)
Broken ice cream scoops can be recycled. This is my favorite ice cream scoop and this is my favorite trigger style. This is also the best day to sort out specialty ice cream bowls you never use. And any other ice cream related product that is just collecting dust in your kitchen.
Now you know that today is National Ice Cream Day. Hopefully these suggestions will be useful.
