Vintage Autumn Celebration: Week 4 - Maple Nut Ice Cream & Maple Sauce

1940s refrigerator ad

It's my personal opinion that when the electric refrigerator with an internal freezer became widely available in homes is when American cuisine started to get really interesting. Sure, you could make ice cream before the advent of home freezers, but the amazing expanded frozen dessert potential exploded - ice cream cake rolls, frozen Jello desserts, etc.! I just really love this era of American food history. Can you tell? 😀

Autumn has been languishing under more heat and humidity, so I thought this week would be a good one for Maple Nut Ice Cream and Maple Sauce! The ice cream recipe is one of those interesting ones that uses rennet and it also calls for maple flavoring and maple syrup. The Marshmallow Sauce is just straight up easy. I'm guessing the marshmallow cream is something like Fluff? I'm going to have to make that recipe. It sounds awesome.

These recipes come from The Good Housekeeping Cook Book, 1944 edition.
