The History of Ice Cream

Ice cream can trace its roots all the way back to ancient days when the Chinese would freeze milk and rice and use it for various reasons other than simply eating it. The history of ice cream can be traced back to the Arabs, around the 10th century, who would sweeten their frozen concoction with sugar instead of fruit juices.

True Ice Cream Appears around 1718

Around 1718, the first recorded written recipe for ice cream starts appearing in England and the Americas. The Quakers brought ice cream to the colonies of America in the very early 1800’s.  Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson were known to have regularly eaten and served ice cream.

Invention of Refrigerators Makes Ice Cream Even More Popular

German engineer Carl von Linde developed industrial refrigeration during the 1870’s which turned into most homes having a cold food storage unit (refrigerator)  by the 1930’s. Slowly, but surely ice cream started becoming a regular in most homes, and by the 1950’s, ice cream had become one of the most popular desserts in the world.
