Does anyone still have one of these Huskys
« on: September 15, 2009, 12:09:54 AM »
I had recently picked up this Husky at a sale.
Does anybody still use them?

Don't have that particular model, but "yes" to the "still use them" question.

Make up the "custard", have some ice and salt handy. Then crank away.  Yummmm!!

Are you going to give it a try?  That Husky looks to be in good shape.  :)

Hope the innards are good too.

According to the person who sold it to me, his grandma thought it was a milk churner.After the first disastrous attempt to churn some curds, it was stored away till I bought it.
The innards are like new and the it turns easily at the lightest touch.
But the wood had dried up quite a bit and is a bit loose.
I suppose the wood will expand once it comes into contact with some water.
And, yes I intend to put it to use very soon.Its nearly 45 years since I've tasted home made ice cream.
Any body has any recipes that I could use?
I am looking for both the Italian type and the American type of ice cream recipes.
The latter does not use eggs (if I remember correct)

I am negotiating for another Husky, its a coffee grinder, probably of the same era as this Husky.

I paid nearly the equivalent of about $5/- for  it.

Sell it? I don't think so.
When I am lucky enough to pick up such things in working condition, It would be a crime to sell them.

Its a great feeling to use them.I have a carbide lamp, some kerosene stoves (Valor) and lamps,(Alladdin and Ditmar).
I still use them once in a way.
So this Husky will be with me.

I have a Husqvarna rifle, chambered in .270 Winchester.  Circa mid 60's.  Great rifle.

Husqvarna is one of the oldest companies in the world . I'm not sure which is older,Husky or Krupp of Germany .

It doesn't surprise me in the least they made ice cream freezers .All you need is some chipped ice,rock salt .whole milk,sugar . vanilla extract .Plus a several eager young  children to turn the crank .

The actual recipes used to be on cans of condensed milk but I suppose not so any more .I'll bet you could find some on the net though . If you get real good at it you can fold in sliced fruit such as fresh peaches,strawberries etc . You have to know when to add the fruit though or else the mix might seperate or the fruit get  ground to a pulp .It has to be nearly frozen before to try the fruit thing.Nothing like it though if it's done right .

Hi Joe,
Custard is cooked first before its churned.  Ice cream on the other hand is not.  Start with two pints of whole cream, add in a cup of granulated sugar and add in another cup of fruit.  Crushed peaches or strawberries work well.

Put the cream and fruit mix into the center cup, and place this cup into the ice bed.  Start churning.  Use salt to make the ice melt faster and use a good bit.  After about a half an hour the cream thickens and you have home made ice cream!

Hope you enjoy it.

Al, Bob,

Thank you for the recipes.
I will definitely try them out as soon as I can persuade my wife that I will not mess up the kitchen too much with the salt and melted ice.
Moreover, the wooden pail though intact, seems to have shrunk with the passing years.There are gaps between them.
I poured in some water and the pail leaked like a sieve.
I think that wood needs to swell.
Closing the gaps with beeswax and keeping  the pail filled with water is what I intend to do.
Unless somebody can give me a better alternative.

Joe

Put a rock in the tub and sink it in a vat of water for a week or so until it swells back up . Same thing as keeping water in a rain barrel .

It may sound odd but my dad had an old Wolverine boat that must have been made in the 40's .Every spring we sank that thing in the creek until it quit leaking  .

We have a big bowl that we use for popcorn that is made by Husky.

I believe the oldest companies are in Japan, dating back much farther than the European ones. Most of the oldest companies are in Germany. I found a website listing oldest companies, might be able to find it again.
