Spoon Soup Saturday #5

Do you remember when?…

Fourth of July is all about nostalgia for me. The most memorable Fourth’s for me were spent in San Jose, California. They would block off the street on both ends, set up saw horses/wooden ladders ect. to set off the fireworks on. For me, the Red Devil stand and all of its wonders, was the only thing I would know of fireworks until many years later when I would see a professional fireworks show.

Chinese Blossoms (which they still have), sparklers, and black snake pellets (the ones that left a black spot on the sidewalk all year-long) were my favorites. It was also tradition to have home-made maple ice cream every Fourth of July. My dad would buy several bags of ice, half n half, maple extract, and rock salt.  But the best part of eating it was not after it was frozen, but when it was half-frozen and the cream would get scraped off of the ‘paddle’ after it was done churning.

    Kristine, this brings back so many memories. When we were little my Grandmother loved to make homemade maple ice cream. When we would all be together, about 50-60 of us on Christmas Eve the men would go into the basement and turn the ice cream makers by hand until the ice cream was ready. They would give us kids turns at the beginning, it got too hard to turn the crank after it started to thicken and freeze. The best part was when it was done and they would bring it up and take out the paddle. Everyone would get a few scoops, and it was the best ice cream ever!
