Frozen custard is made in a continuous freezer that churns—you guessed it—continuously, at a warmer temp, without incorporating a ton of air. In comparison, an ice cream machine purposefully aerates, yielding a lighter texture. Frozen Custard must contain at least 10% butterfat and 1.4% egg yolk. Frozen Custard achieves its creaminess through a production process that produces less air (“overrun”) and fewer ice crystals than traditional ice cream. The high percentage of butterfat and egg yolk gives frozen custard a thick, creamy texture and a smoother consistency than ice cream.
Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo) is a popular variety of summer squash that can be consumed raw or cooked. Zucchinis were first brought to the United States in the 1920s by the Italians.
