Molded Italian ice cream.  How could you go wrong?

Here are today’s five thing to know about Spumoni

  1. An average dairy cow can produce enough milk in her lifetime to make a little over 9,000 gallons of ice cream.
  2. A cow has only 1 stomach with 4 areas where food is digested: the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and the abdomen.
  3. The udder of a cow can hold between 25-50 lbs. of milk.
  4. In the U.S., all ice cream needs to have a minimum of 10% milkfat if it is to be labeled “ice cream”. This includes custard based (French Style) ice creams.
  5. Sorbet, has no milk at all!
