The term “Homemade” refers to the production method. Hot Licks ice cream is made by the individual batch, forty quarts at a time, as opposed to the continuous flow system used by large companies to turn out thousands of gallons of each flavor.
The batch freezing method, combined with the use of the very finest ingredients obtainable, imparts an “old fashioned” or “homemade” characteristic to the ice cream that is absent from even the best of the national brands.
Batch freezing also allows for tremendous flexibility and virtually unlimited flavor possibilities. Where is the fun in making your own ice cream if you can’t make any flavor you can imagine?
