Pierce Mill Demonstrating Ice Cream Making on Saturday, a Nice Outing for the Family

If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, Pierce Mill is hosting a free event on Saturday demonstrating ice cream making. From their announcement:

Lean how to make hand-cranked ice cream the old fashioned way on Saturday, August 5th at Peirce Mill starting at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  This demonstration will show you how ice and salt creates a brine that reduces the temperature below freezing, and cranking the handle for 30 minutes can whip this frozen treat made famous by Dolly Madison after her return from France. A historic recipe by Thomas Jefferson with modern adaptation will be available to take away Free!

Peirce Mill is located in Rock Creek Park at 2401 Tilden Street, NW, at the intersection of Beach Drive and Tilden Street, NW (Park Road if approaching from the east).  The mill was built circa 1820 by Isaac Peirce and owned by the family for three generations.  To learn more, visit www.FriendsofPeirceMill.org.
