We all love to have ice cream. Each one of us has a craving for different flavours of ice-creams. There are a few people in this world who say no to ice-creams. They could be particular about a distinct flavour, but a complete denial is not possible. So, in a nutshell, we can say that almost everyone loves some or the other flavour of ice-cream. We love the different flavours of it, but we have never thought about the origin of the ice-creams or about the history behind the invention of it. Therefore, in this article, we will talk about the different countries and the year in which the flavours of ice-cream were invented there. Following are a few of the countries and the history of ice-cream related to it.
If we talk about the invention of ice creams, then it is Persia, where the first ice cream was made, according to records. It was around 400 BC that the first ice-cream was made. As we all know that it is nothing, but flavoured ice, so ice was mixed with saffron, fruits, and various other good food items. The main ingredient of this ice-cream was vermicelli and rose water.
Earlier, there was not any fridge and all, where people can make ice cream. So, ice was bought from other places and then other flavours were mixed into it. If we talk about the history of ice cream in Rome, then there was an emperor known as Nero, who used to ask his officials to bring ice from the mountains. After that, different flavours were added to that and along with that fruits were added on the top to make it tastier.
In India, ice cream was invented in the sixteen century, when the Mughal emperors were ruling our country. They used to ask their officials to bring ice from the Hindu Kush to Delhi. The ice was used in Delhi for making fruit sorbets. Now, there are a lot of varieties of ice cream that you can find here. One of the best forms of ice cream that you can find in India is Kulfi. You cannot find an Indian who has not tasted Kulfi in his or her life. This is one of the prominent deserts of India. This is known as traditional ice cream of India. Earthen pots are used for making this ice cream.
There is a bit wired history about ice-cream if we talk about Ancient Greece. As we all know that Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine belongs to this place only. He used to ask his patients to eat ice. From there, people started eating honey mixed with ice and fruit in the market of Athens. This was not exactly an ice-cream but had ice in it. This period marks the invention of the ice-cream in Ancient Greece.
So, this was a brief history of ice-cream from different countries. We have always liked eating ice-creams, but have never thought about the invention of it.
