The weather in Texas this summer has been steamy and hot, but the Wilson County Public Library cooled down with our annual Ice Cream Freeze-Off on Saturday, July 14. The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Wilson County Public Library as part of the County-Wide Summer Reading Club.

This year’s event sported 53 tasters and 10 different flavors. The flavors entered into the 2012 contest included: Almond Cherry, Big Red, Butter Pecan, Butterfinger, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Honey, Milky Way, and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. As an added treat for our ice cream tasters, library staff located the handwritten copy of Thomas Jefferson’s Vanilla Ice Cream recipe stored with the Library of Congress and made a batch for sampling.

Our winners this year were William Bowen with his batch of Puddin’ Pop, Brittany Swiger of San Antonio with her entry of Cinnamon, and brothers Austin and Henry Coleman (tied with Brittany) with their Big Red Ice Cream. William Bowen chose the Ice Cream Maker Ball and the popular cookbook Idiots Guide to Homemade Ice Cream; Brittany chose the new soft serve ice cream maker, along with the Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Cookbook as her prize; and brothers Austin and Henry went home with the decorated basket of ice cream cones and various toppings.

Several of this year’s contestants are planning to crank up the heat for next year’s competition and have vowed to start working on an award-winning recipe for the 2013 Ice Cream Freeze-Off.

For information about library programs, contact us either online or by phone at 830- 393-7361.
