RV Yummies- Young's Jersey Dairy in Ohio
My ICH begun in Dayton, Ohio. Anyone that knows this slightly bewildered traveler writer well enough knows that sweets are a gauge of travel for my immersion traveling. How much chocolate, how many puff pastries or how many scoops of gelato I can get determine my views on a city. I've been chocolate touring in Paris, cake discovering in Austria, doughnut forging in Portland, custard fluffing in Cuba, balsamic tasting in Italy and buttermilk tasting in Amsterdam before going to find the perfect cheese in the countryside of Normandy. There have been street food pies in London and hot chocolate in Bath, vegan ice cream hunting in St. Paul and Strawberry short cakes in Cancun. All in all, it's a great job to have and one which has lead me to the sport of RVing and the gamesmanship of Ice Cream Hunting.
For today's column we're going to talk about Ohio's number one spot for Ice Cream, Young's Dairy.
"We make all of our own ice cream right here on the farm. Our ice cream is made from a 15% butterfat mix (pasteurized milk, cream, and sugar mixture). 15% butterfat ice cream is very rich in taste. It has a smooth, creamy texture and blends well with many flavors.
We make our ice cream with machines called batch freezers, which make 5 or 10 gallons of ice cream per batch. Each batch takes about 12-15 minutes to make. We add the flavorings at different stages of the process depending on how we want the ingredients mixed in."
Young's Jersey Dairy is just outside Yellow Spring Ohio, a little outside of Springfield. Go check out the ice cream and maybe even some pie. Watch as they make the cones by hand and fill them with ice cream made in the next building over.
