We're all aware of the great grocery downsizing scam that's taking center stage at your local supermarket. But strangely enough, I'm not mad about that. I've always admired creative thinking, and for that reason alone I have to stand up and applaud the consumer-product packing divisions across this great land of ours. First, this isn't new. Vending machine candy bars were way ahead of the curve, and they were pretty slick about it. They'd say, "Hey, we're lowering the price on Snickers, Yay!"

As the end of summer nears, we still have time to enjoy that cold, delicious dairy treat we all love - ice cream! Eating ice cream is an easy way to consume a serving of dairy. It's proven that consuming three servings of dairy products, such as milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream, will help kids build strong bones and help teenagers and adults prevent osteoporosis and high blood pressure. One serving of ice cream is equal to a scoop the size of a tennis ball. The added sugar in ice cream is one reason not to eat too much ice cream, but the calcium and other nutrients it contains makes it a healthy desert to occasionally enjoy.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Jake Sweet's name is a perfect marriage of moniker and occupation. Sweet makes ice cream and lots of it - about 16,000 gallons a year in his small dairy in Waynesboro. Ten years ago, Sweet, 48, bought Antietam Dairy at 834 S. Church St. It was owned by Donald Meckley, who opened it 30 years earlier. According to Sweet, Meckley worked as a milkman for a local farm dairy and decided to strike out on his own. He delivered milk at first and two years later started making ice cream.

SHARPSBURG heatherk@herald-mail.com Sitting at a picnic table in the Ag Expo's main show ring Monday afternoon, 8-year-old Marie Quick glanced up from her task of periodically pouring salt over the barrel of ice to take in a bit of farm lore from Ag Expo treasurer Bill Shelton. "Have you ever made ice cream in a coffee can?" he asked. When Marie and her mom shook their heads, Shelton described how he used to teach Cub Scouts how to make ice cream by putting the ingredients in a small can, sealing it and placing it in a large coffee can filled with ice, then rolling it back and forth.

Ice cream recipes can come out of left field, as did the bacon ice cream a "Top Chef" reality show contestant made with liquid nitrogen. And then they can come out of deep left field, as in PETA's request last month that a popular commercial ice cream company use human breast milk in it's ice cream instead of cow's milk. But the truth is, you're in good company if you like your ice cream plain. Vanilla is the most popular flavor in the U.S., according to International Dairy Foods Association, a Washington D.C.-based trade group.

When the burgers and frankfurters are done, keep the grill going for dessert. The heat helps caramelize the sugars in fruit, as in this recipe for grilled strawberries and bananas. Pineapple, plums, peaches and mango are other great options for grilled fruit. Alternatively, skip the ice cream and serve these berries and bananas over pound or angel food cake dusted with powdered sugar.
