Kimball's Creamery is the first to bring authentic, old-fashioned frozen custard to the Golden Triangle. If you've not yet tasted frozen custard, come on in for a sample of this delicious and creamy premium ice cream.
We serve vanilla and chocolate daily, as well as a "Flavor of the Day." We then use these as a base for all our frozen custard treats.
What is Frozen Custard?
Genuine frozen custard has at least 1.4% pasteurized egg yolk and at least 10% milk fat, and is made in a special machine created for producing frozen custard only.
In our custard machine, the custard travels from a refrigerated hopper through a valve into a freezing chamber lined with beaters. The frozen custard is pushed through the chamber and out the front of the machine and into a waiting bucket, ready to be served. Because it is not held in the chamber, there is very little air (overrun) pumped into the finished custard. This low overrun is what gives frozen custard its wonderfully dense and creamy texture, or “mouthfeel.”
By comparison, soft-serve custards, yogurt, and ice creams are made using what is known as a batch freezer, where the mixture remains in the machine and the overrun is as much as 100%. Hard-packed ice cream is flash frozen and held at very low temperatures for many days or weeks.
Since it is freshly made, our custard is served at a temperature of 17-20 degrees, and is neither flash-frozen nor held at sub-zero temperatures. This allows the delicious flavor to really come through.
