I wasn’t going to do it. Everyone else who has a freeze dryer seems to be addicted to freeze dried ice cream but I’m better than that. I’m using my freeze dryer for more important things, definitely not . . ice cream.
But then one day, we could no longer find Blue Bell’s Christmas Cookie ice cream. We were so sad . . heartbroken really! What’ Christmas without Blue Bell’s Christmas Cookie ice cream?
Then Brookshires had it on sale . . 2 cartons for $10. The were supposed to be getting a truck in . . a truck filled with Blue Bell ice cream. Vince called them. YES! They had plenty. We went to Brookshires and bought two cartons. Then, the next week, United had it on sale . . 2 cartons for $8. We bought two more. It wasn’t my idea . . really, I was saying “We don’t need four cartons of Blue Bell ice cream in the freezer!” But, we ended up with four cartons of Blue Bell ice cream in the freezer. We haven’t been eating it so I said . . dang it, I’ll run a load through the freeze dryer. It takes about a full carton of ice cream to fill the four shelves.
The entire half gallon was reduced down to six of these bags but it’s a yummy snack and doesn’t have to be kept in the freezer. Now that I’ve let myself freeze dry ice cream, I’m sure I’ll do it again.
