  3. Snow Ice Cream

    Snow Ice CreamIn the northern hemisphere, it's that time of year. It's time for snowmen, snowball fights, and the detestable chore of shoveling snow. Snow, however, can be used to make a delightful winter treat: ice cream.

    If you want to make snow ice cream, using freshly fallen snow is best in this endeavor. Setting out bowls to catch fresh white powder is the best way to accomplish this chore. However, if you are concerned about cleanliness and hygiene, you can also use shaved ice. Avoid packed, hard snow, as it will not work as well as the fresh variety.

    To make this fun, delicious ice cream, you'll need the following:

  7. Flake Ice at the Fish Market

    Fish MarketThere are farmer’s markets all over the country, but we believe that the ones who are closer to the coast have it the best. They get fresh fish shipped in any time they want, and many of the catches that are on the flake ice in the evening were swimming in the ocean that morning.

    Having an undercounter commercial flake ice machine at a fresh fish market is always a healthy option, especially if it’s a small market. The firepower that a huge machine offers isn’t necessary, but there needs to be enough flake ice power to produce enough ice. Many of the smaller shops will go for ice machines in the 300-500 pound per day production range.

  10. Bartenders Guide to Ice

    Ice does two things for drinks: makes them cold and adds water. Bartenders use different kinds of ice to control these factors. In general, the heavier the ice the faster a drink will get cold and the slower it will melt. Ice types with more surface area and lighter weight will melt faster. Shaking or stirring will speed both up. But it’s more complex than that.

    Water type – Impurities in water can affect the taste of ice and the overall drink, so most bars use filtered water. But trapped gases like oxygen can also make ice melt faster and look less appealing. Gourmet ice cubes use special freezing techniques to remove gases so ice is clear and very heavy.

    Cubed – Cubed ice is used in drinks served “on the rocks.” Large heavy cubes add just enough water to the drink to release flavor compounds without diluting the drink too much. However, they aren’t good for shaking o
