One of the main things that makes Graeter’s handcrafted ice cream so unique is the French Pot Process. It’s the same way that our founder, Louis Charles Graeter, made ice cream in the late 1800’s.
So What Does The Process Look Like?
We start with the finest ingredients, mixed all together and pasteurized to develop the best possible flavor profiles. What happens next is what truly makes Graeter’s so special.
We take our creamy mixture, pour it into 2-gallon French Pot freezers and hand-swirl each batch until it’s slowly frozen without whipping in air. This is what gives Graeter’s ice cream it’s creamy texture. Once the batch is frozen, we hand-pack each pint before shipping it out to your local Graeter’s, local grocery store, or directly to your home address.
