How old is ice cream?
The origins of the first true ice cream remain shrouded in mystery.
- 3,000 years ago, the Chinese built icehouses and made mixtures of milk and rice, freezing it within a second container of ice and salt water
- 2,000 years ago Ancient Persians kept snow in underground chambers or harvested from still-frozen mountain peaks. Then, concentrated grape juice was poured over it in a bowl
- Even before Marco Polo brought recipes back to Europe, Arabian sherbets were popular, flavored with everything from rose, jasmine, and violets to chilled syrups made of fruit juices
- The first book about ice cream was written in 1700 in French and called L’Art de Faire des Glacés
- During the Colonial Era, Quakers brought their recipes to the New World and sold the treat in large cities
- George Washington and other founding fathers regularly enjoyed the treat. Washington even made it a Presidential treat
- Nancy Johnson patented the first hand-cranked small-batch ice cream machine in 1843
