“If you don’t feel guilty, it wasn’t that good.” According to a 1987 Frusen Glädjé commercial, you’d be crazy to stop eating ice cream! The Swedish-sounding ice cream brand doesn’t exist anymore, but we’re certainly not lacking in other options – from Breyers to Ben & Jerry’s. We kick off today’s show with some advice on making homemade ice cream from the confection queen, Rose Levy Beranbaum. We try to get some research and development secrets out of one of Ben & Jerry’s flavor gurus, and hear about boozy trade secrets from St. Louis microcreamery, Clementine’s Naughty and Nice Creamery. Lastly, we get to the bottom of the pint with an investigation into overrun, or the air that gets pushed into your ice cream during production.
