Chirin-Chirin ICE, Nagasaki (チリンチリンアイス, 長崎), Japan

The classical sorbet in Nagasaki city

 

“Chirin-Chirin”(ting-a-ling), “Chirin-Chirin”(ting-a-ling).

In one afternoon in the middle of summer, the small bell was ringing to inform a small ice cream stand reaching. One old woman in white coverall apron (Kappougi 割烹着) sat beside the small wood stand for ice cream.

After I ordered a cup of ice cream, she decorated ice cream like rose on the ice-cream cone.

 
The ice cream is soft and sweet and melted on my tongue. This was called as ice cream in Nagasaki, but I think it is milk flavour sorbet.
 

The refrigeration method is very simple and elementary school level method. The woman does not bring refrigerator with her at the stand. They bring just ice with salt to keep their ice cream chilled.
The manufacturing method was also simple and classical. They used much ice cube and salt to chilled the ingredient to make the ice cream. They muddled and muddled the liquid of the ingredient till become ice cream.

This sorbet has very long history in Nagasaki for more than fifty years. After World War II, this taste of sorbet was kept in Nagasaki. When you come to Nagasaki and find the ice cream stand, please try and refresh during your sightseeing. They stand at the sightseeing spot in Nagasaki, as Peace park(平和公園), Megane Bridge(眼鏡橋) or Glover Garden(グラバー園)
