JULIAN, NC -- Mmmm, ice cream! There are lots of legends of how ice cream got started, but the Farmer's Almanac dates ice cream back to 907 in China!

The first ice cream machine in the U.S. was patented in 1843 and in 1850 the first commercial ice cream factory was opened in Pennsylvania.

To see how ice cream is made today,  we went to Homeland Creamery in Julian.

"Our ice cream is made in a processing room where they make the mix and after the mix is made its brought to me, depending on what flavors were working on that day." explains Paige Garland.

Homeland Creamery ice cream makers then pour the mix into the machine and add the flavoring. Once the flavoring is added, we will let it freeze four about eight minutes so it get a good consistency.

"If it a flavor like chocolate chips, once the mix comes out or the ice cream comes out after the liquid flavor is added. Then we hand stir our ingredients to it and we will remove it from the machine take it directly to our freezer so that its will be ready to sell."
