Ice cream can be traced back to the Early Roman Empire. Nero (A.D. 37-68) ordered ice cream topped with fresh fruits. Concoctions of ices, sherbets and milk were served in Italian and French royal courts. Ice Cream was brought from Europe to the America’s. In 1776 the first American ice cream parlor opened in New York City. The term “ice cream” was introduced by American colonists. Ice cream was served to White House guests by President George Washington and President Thomas Jefferson.
In 1832 Augustus Jackson created recipes for making ice cream. In 1846 created and patented a hand-cranked freezer. This hand cranked freezer established ice cream methods used today.
