Ways to Make Ice Cream
There are three basic ways of making ice cream, in a baggie, in a pan, or in an ice cream machine. The bag method is the most laborious method as you must shake it by hand until frozen. This recipe calls to freeze it in a pan but it can also be used in an ice cream maker if you wish.
How to Store Ice Cream
Store your homemade ice cream in the main part of the freezer and avoid storing it on the freezer door, where ice cream can be subject to more fluctuating temperatures since the door is repeatedly opened and shut. Keep your homemade ice cream in an airtight container with a lid tightly closed on it to reduce the formation of ice crystals.
History of Ice Cream
In 1824 Mary Randolph published her cookbook called The Virginia Housewife, which included many ice cream recipes. The first commercial ice-making machine was invented in 1854. In 1913, refrigerators for home use were invented.
History of Peaches
Peaches originally came from China. They were traded along the Silk Road and made their way to Europe before eventually gracing American groves. Franciscan monks introduced peaches to St. Simons and Cumberland islands along Georgia’s coast in 1571.
The Metropolitan City of Atlanta, Georgia
Atlanta is the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia. It played an important part in both the Civil War and the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. Atlanta History Center chronicles the city’s past, and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life and times. Downtown, Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Olympics, encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium.
A Brief History of Atlanta
For thousands of years prior to the discovery of the New World, the indigenous Creek people and their ancestors inhabited the area. The Creek people were forced to leave the area in 1821, under Indian Removal by the federal government, and European American settlers arrived the following year.
By 1860, Atlanta’s population had grown to 9,554 and during the American Civil War, the city was a strategic hub for the distribution of military supplies. In 1864 General Sherman surrounded the city and began a four-month-long siege that would lead to its surrender on September 1, 1864.
During the 20th century, Atlanta enjoyed continued growth by building the city’s infrastructure, and skyscrapers, and attracting merchants and manufacturing companies. During the 2000s, the city of Atlanta underwent profound physical, cultural, and demographic changes. As some of the African American middle and upper classes also began to move to the suburbs, a booming economy drew numerous new migrants from other cities in the United States, who contributed to changes in the city’s demographics.
Tourism in Atlanta
As of 2010, Atlanta is the seventh-most visited city in the United States, with over 35 million visitors per year. Atlanta’s tourism industry is mostly driven by the city’s history museums and outdoor attractions. Tourists are drawn to the city’s culinary scene, which comprises a mix of urban establishments garnering national attention, ethnic restaurants serving cuisine from every corner of the world, and traditional eateries specializing in Southern dining.
The Cuisine of Atlanta
The cuisine of Atlanta reflects both Southern and much broader influences. The city is home to a mix of high-end chef-driven restaurants receiving praise at the national level, an ethnic restaurant scene along Buford Highway, and traditional Southern eateries.
The city’s first restaurant was a tiny establishment manned by a Frenchman named Toney Maquino and he served ham, eggs, and oysters when the city was still known as Marthasville.
