The difference is (partially) in the air. All ice cream is technically foam–at least that’s what chemists would tell you. "In ice cream–liquid particles of fat–called fat globules–are spread throughout a mixture of water, sugar and ice, along with air bubbles," writes Brian Rohrig for ChemMatters. The air bubbles are essential to giving ice cream its texture. In soft serve, writes Vanessa Farquharson for the National Post, "all that air leaves less room for dairy fat."
To make these memories become a reality for your family, you’ll need to purchase an ice cream maker for your home. You’re choices are pretty broad. You can get an old fashioned churn that you can work on the porch with family members taking turns working the crank and mixing the ingredients with the ice to make great ice cream. These old fashioned models will definitely take you back to another time in history and an antique ice cream maker can really make the experience authentic.
