Editor’s Note:Nothing beats homemade ice cream! In celebration of National Ice Cream Month, Galen Lehman, president of Lehman’s and son of founder Jay Lehman, is sharing how to make this sweet treat in a traditional ice cream freezer (like the one pictured above).
Our family spent 10 years in Africa doing missionary and disaster relief work. In those days, dairy products and especially ice cream were rarely available. Our version of a great party included homemade ice cream (if we could find the ingredients). Fortunately, the list is short: Cream, eggs, sugar, vanilla. And, if you can’t get the first three ingredients, Carnation Condensed Milk and vanilla makes a passable (but not especially great) substitute.
Editor’s Note: In memory of our founder Jay Lehman (1929 – 2020), we are rerunning a touching article his son, Galen, wrote for Father’s Day a couple of years ago. This is in honor of Jay’s birthday, April 21, when he would have turned 92. Rest in peace, Jay. We miss you.

Sharing the cold sweetness with cousins at a summer family reunion?
Mine revolve around the ice cream freezer, because we always like to make our own. In fact, our hand-cranked ice cream freezer took on mythical importance to our family life. It was like an ice cream fount of goodness, the horn of plenty from which sprang sweet, creamy cold-on-a-hot-summer-day fun. Continue reading →
