ARGOS - Sugar, milk, eggs, cream, brown sugar, maple syrup, and nuts were some of the ingredients that made up the four competing recipes for this year's Ice Cream Crank Off.
Held at the Marshall County Fair since 1992, the competition has seen many variations on cherry, peach, rocky road, mint, and this year's flavor, maple nut.
With 60 minutes to freeze and serve up their cold treats, the makers got churning.
"Everybody has to make the same thing," said Don Morrison. He and his wife Eileen used toasted nuts to add an extra dimension to their concoction.

He was interviewed for a profile piece about his mother, a Kentucky state representative, who died of diabetes. The inspiration for his walk for awareness was sparked by the journalist that interviewed him.
