Ag Week at the Mall - Ice Cream Cranking Contest

Ice Cream Making Contest – Registration will begin from 6:00 to 6:30 p.m. at center court and churning will begin at 6:30 p.m.  Groups will need to supply their own hand crank freezer (which is in good condition and the mix is placed in a food grade, cleanable container inside the “bucket”), floor covering, supplies, (no eggs to be used in recipe), salt, ice, etc., along with a copy of the ice cream recipe for the judging.  Supplies should be purchased immediately prior to the event and transported to the event site in a cooler.  Ice cream must be churned on the premises and not pre-made.  Committee members will inspect the ice cream containers before churning begins.  Space also will be limited, (so individuals may have to take turns churning for their group).  Those teams participating will also need to supply ice cream for those in attendance and will be required to clean up their area after churning.  If teams do not supply ice cream for public consumption, the team will be disqualified. 

The Frederick County Dairy Princess and Dairy Maids, and the Frederick County 4-H Royalty will be assisting with the ice cream churning and distribution.  Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st through 5th place.  For further information or questions, please visit the Frederick County Health Department’s website, Food Control Division.  If the snow emergency plan is in effect, the ice cream churning will be held on Wednesday, February 19th.
