Kunztzman Makes Ice Cream with Snow, 1921

We applaud ingenuity when it comes to the making of ice cream. Here’s an example from the June 9, 1921 edition of the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Made Ice Cream With Snow.
If someone should tell you that he had made ice cream right here within a few miles of Skidmore, within the past week, using snow instead of ice to do the freezing, you might be tempted to think he was somewhat mistaken — but that is exactly what George Kuntzman did a few days ago. Last winter Mr. Kuntzman, being unable to get ice suitable for storing, put some snow in his ice house and covered it with sawdust. Upon digging into it last week, he found the snow well preserved and hard enough to pack the ice cream freezer.
