Get Crankin'

Maybe those Yanks go bonkers over all those ridiculous Ben and Jerry's flavors, but here in Texas, ice cream loyalty belongs to Brenham-based Blue Bell. And yet, there's one thing that beats Blue Bell any day--a spoonful of just-cranked, fresh-from-the-kitchen homemade ice cream. The ingredients are simple, and with a little elbow grease (and rock salt), anyone can crank up a gallon of the cold, creamy dessert. Not sure where to start? How about with the Homemade Ice Cream class at Central Market Plano, 320 Coit Road? For just $55, learn how to make watermelon red wine sorbet, no-cook buttermilk vanilla ice cream, mango saffron ice cream, chocolate ice cream, caramel sauce, and peaches and cream. Class is 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Class size is limited. To reserve your space, call 469-241-8389 or visit
