Owners Mike Haggerty and Kathy Steffens are proud to present Milwaukee's best-kept and tastiest secret, the variety of ice cream known as frozen custard.
Kathy grew up in Milwaukee, "the custard capital of the world" and was disappointed to find that this delectable gourmet ice cream was not available upon moving to CT.
Encouraged by the prospective opportunity along with a quest to share this delicious product with Connecticut, the idea for "Scotties Frozen Custard" was born.
Mike a electrician by trade, jumped on board to make Scotties a reality today.
We owned and adored two Scottish Terriers, Hootie and Louie, our distinguished mascots who are forever in our hearts.
Frozen custard is a richer premium ice cream with a higher butterfat and egg content. In comparision to ordinary ice cream, frozen custard is ambrosia and the taste of nostalgia.
Although it has certain similarities, it isn't to be confused with baked custard or with ice milk extruded into cones and sundaes at various other establishments.
Ice cream and frozen custard both contain cream, sugar and flavoring, but that's where the resemblance ends. While both desserts must contain more that 10% butterfat to be worthy of their names under the "standard of identity", frozen custard generally contains more, which accounts for its rich taste.
Frozen custard is chilled to only 23 degrees. Ice cream is frozen to a solid 10 degrees. Most brands of ice cream contain about 45% air, or twice that of frozen custard. The amount of air that is added results in "overrun".
What really accounts for impression connoisseurs have that frozen custard is richer than ordinary ice cream is the egg yolks in the recipe. Frozen custard must contain 1.4% yolk. Frozen custard is what ice cream ought to be and we're sure you'll be bowled over after your first lick! Curious about a new frozen custard fan's first response? "It's so creamy" we hear it over and over again!
Our custard is always made fresh daily on the premises throughout the day by a specialized frozen custard machine with only the freshest of ingredients.
Don't be fooled by imitations or wanna be's.
Real frozen custard, like that sold in the Mid-West can only be made in specialized equipment made specifically for this purpose.
