Nat'l Spumoni Day
Certainly, you know how to celebrate National Spumoni Day? Have some Spumoni ice cream! Spumoni is an Italian ice cream, originating in Naples, Italy. It was brought to America by immigrants in 1870. While it is enjoyed any day of the year, many people consider it a Christmas time dessert or treat.
Spumoni is made of layers of ice cream (usually vanilla, but sometimes chocolate) candied fruits, cherries, and nuts. Pistachios are commonly used. Whipped cream is included in some recipes.
