…TIS… STALKIN’ TIME IT SEEMS… TARGET TODAY… GELATI…GELATO… CAPTURE… IS IMMINENT… WE HOPE… OR BEFORE IT MELTS ANYWAYS…

 

Today… we are stalking a quarry.

My Daughter,.. i, Shiro… too.

 

The ICE-CREAM Van…

… was the target.

 

The Legends

of;

or rather,..

… An ICE-CREAM VAN in fact,.. in deed… also.

 

Online… and on the streets.

 

Also,.. NOT just any ol’ Van.

 

GELATI or GELATO… if so prefer.

HOME-MADE.

CLICK Herein TOP 18 CONDIMENTS OF THE CUPBOARD. THE SLIDE-SHOW. INTEL AND MORE.

 

…ANOTHER OF THE… NOT THE ACTUAL ICE-CREAM VAN… Shiro + co.,.. ARE STALKING… ANOTHER LOOK-A-LIKE THAT IS…

 

THAT ICE-CREAM VAN… that is indeed… sublime…

(…when one ignores the Sugars content that is…)

 

A necessity of LIFE in the Aussie Summers… and any other Season… too.

 

Ice-cream.

Our World Legend indeed.

SO MANY FLAVORS… SO MANY UNIQUE CLASSIC WEAPONS OF YORE… HEREIN. A SET OF 9. Shiro STYLE. INTEL. THE LEGENDS. BASICS. TERMS… AND MORE. A SCROLLING GALLERY.

 

Natural. Herein. The Stone. Philosophise.

When in my youth,.. the EUROPEAN born ELDERS oft created their own version.

Simply Grating ICE and smothering with a Syrup or suchlike.

 

Sweet as and sharply refreshing, esp. the zesty Lemon & Lime one.

When a certain AUNT made them… very several small pieces of Mint Leaf added.

 

 

Not sure how the Syrup was made…

… i,… was somehow kept busy trying to make my own ICED PERFECTION Version rather than LEARN this Process…work.

 

Certain Adults… added Liquor(s)… too…

… and left the Bottle… nearby.

 

This SORBET Type mix is the historical fore-runner of our Modern Ice-cream.

Known to many Civilisations and Cultures (click).

 

ICE… and/or oft SNOW… the chilly component.

 

Fruit pieces, Fruit juices and sweet syrups, Honeys the usual additions (click).

Similar to now. Sweet as.

 

SALT UNLOCKS

THE POWER OF ICE.

 

THIS HEART… FOR THE GODDESS. THE FIRST. THE PEDESTAL. INANNA. THE LEGENDS. THE SEARCH FOR HER TEMPLE… too. Shiro STYLE INDEED IT SEEMS.

 

Chemically apt that SALT… (click) is the stuff of LEGEND.

Herein… too (click).

 

Prior to Electricity… ONLY WITH SALT… could you make Ice-Cream.

 

Tis true.

So these LEGENDS say.

 

In times of Yore… only Nature made Ice Blocks.

Hence as noted above… ANCIENT ICE-CREAM… WAS…

…basically SNOW or Grated ICE… and fruit add-ins.

 

LOTSA ICE… NOT MUCH CREAM… per se.

 

SALTS… MINERAL STYLE.

 

Till SALT… came to the rescue… and table… and chef… too.

 

Salt’s Properties include varying and tweaking slightly BOTH the Boiling Point… AND FREEZING Point of Water.

This ability enabled the CHILL FACTOR of ICE to be lengthened so a milk/cream solution in a bowl immersed in such… had time to chill out indeed…before the ice melted away… and thus;

 

The Cream… is now… also ICED.

 

SALT… The HERO there.

ICE-CREAM added to our Menu and when Electricity mass availed… mass produced… also.

The QAIDAM BASIN and surrounds that are home to the SALT LAKE CHAKA… are also a SILK ROAD Site of Importance of Yore… with a History of some 3,000 years of usage. The Trade goods and basic necessities that traversed these ANCIENT ROADS have long included such as SALT.

The CHAKA Salt Lake is approx. over 5 mtrs. thick/deep and can cover a flatland of approx. 9 kilometres in length and some 15 k’s width.

 

It ‘ fills out ‘ when the seasonal conditions appropriate and markedly ‘ shrinks ‘ when not (click).

Estimate of 75+ years natural crystalline Salt Stock accrued allows for production and export of hundreds of tons.

 

Tours and sight-seeing permitted,.. weather permitting of course… too.

 

Salt Sculptures by Locals and Workers may also oft litter the landscape…
