I've been wanting an ice cream maker for a long time and someone in the house has been listening! I guess if big enough hints are dropped they might get picked up. So when I unwrapped a box on Christmas morning and a giant Cuisinart fell out I was quite chuffed. True, there's a planet's worth of funky flavors available at the store, but don't you ever think that your own flavor ideas would be much better than what's in the freezer aisle?
I know I'll be making bucket loads of ice cream in the future. I have a million ideas swirlin' around in my head! The flavor idea for this ice cream came from my pistachio and rosemary caramel It's the most popular flavor and surprises almost everyone who tastes it. Nobody thinks that rosemary will work in a caramel but as soon as they pop it in their mouth, the eyes widen and eyebrows rise up.
The result, super-silky-smooth, creamy, salty and caramely with a crunch from the pistachios and lastly the rosemary. Wig-out crazy tasting good!
