Gooseberry and Elderflower Ice-cream
I was flabbergasted to read the following in the newspaper a couple of weeks ago:
“Children will soon be able to enjoy ice lollies made at home in as little as seven minutes. A new gadget speeds up the summer tradition of freezing squash or juice into moulds.”
So for just £40 you can teach children they can have things on demand and use up more electricity than needs be. Whatever happened to teaching our children that patience is a virtue or that you can’t have everything when you want it. As Paul Sweeney writes “how can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?”.
