Fun factoid - did you know that both President Jefferson and Washington loved ice cream? I was recently listening to a history podcast on the invention of ice cream when they mentioned that both presidents were big fans of the tasty treat. Washington often served ice cream when entertaining and Jefferson's estate was discovered to have a large quantity of ice cream making supplies along with his very own ice cream recipe, which I'll share with you today.
I don't know about you, but I think food is a great way for kids to connect to any historical figure, especially when that food is a delicious treat. Click here for the recipe.
