Going Green

Green Coffee Beans Besides the cookbook, one of the projects we have for this winter is to try to make our company more green. Not only is it the right thing to do, but hopefully we can also save money on electricity, etc., as well as feeling good about ourselves! We are going to have a full environmental audit soon, and I’ll let you know how it goes…

In the mean time, I found treehugger.com, which should interest anyone with a slightly green tinge. They have such tidbits as How to Green your Coffee and Tea (compost the grinds, use Fairtrade, avoid tea bags, etc.) as well as How to Green your Electricity and even How to Green your Sex Life. I guess they haven’t written “How to Green Your Ice Cream” yet…

  1. In a restaurant in Kent which I worked in in the 70s we used to make our own ice cream in a thoroughly green fashion.
    We had a hand cranked salt churn.
    We poured the ingredients into an inner cylinder, put this into a large bucket thing and packed the whole with ice and salt.
    Then we hand churned until it became stiff, this took about 30 mts.
    The ice-cream was (of course) much better than any I have made in an electric churn.

  2. Very cool, Winton, thanks! And Martin – that is indeed a way to do it! I just don’t know if we could and churn 300 litres at a time. Mind you, we’d be pretty fit!
