Black sesame ice cream

Black sesame, or kuro goma (黒ごま), is used in several Japanese sweets. I especially love it in creamy puddings, including ice cream. If you want a goth dessert, eat this frozen, grey delicacy. 🙂 Swirling the custard. Custard mixed, ready for the ice cream maker.

Vanilla ice cream (v2.0)

Edited to update ingredients. Summer-ish weather is upon us, which means it’s time for ice cream. Here is a simple recipe for vanilla ice cream, made with vanilla sugar. Goes well with fresh fruit (cherries! apricots in a few weeks!), raspberry liqueur, maple syrup, and soda floats. This recipe yields about a quart.

Maple sugar ice cream

As one of my favorite flavors, maple is a logical choice for ice cream! If you’re unable to find maple sugar at your grocers, you can find it online at Etsy or Amazon. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups heavy cream 1 1/2 cups whole milk 1/2 cup maple sugar 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar 2 […]

Mocha ice cream

For me, mocha has a more chocolatey dimension added to the coffee ice cream. Since that post, we’ve gained a burr grinder and relegated the old rotary blade one for grinding up spices.

Raspberry-vanilla ice cream

We don’t get raspberries here as often as we do blackberries and ollalieberries. But one day this past summer, Simon came home from the market with the most fragrant of raspberries… He got four punnets for $12—not cheap!—although high quality and organic, from Borba Farms. It was barely over a pound of fruit, so not […]

Honey fromage blanc ice cream, plus a drink

One of my strongest food memories from France was stopping at a roadside shack in Provence, run by an grizzled, bearded man with a Harley-Davidson out front. It was a warm summer day, and we were hungry and thirsty. Maybe try this fromage-miel-something-something? Out comes a nearly overflowing parfait glass (a.k.a., sundae glass) filled with […]

Lime & mint ice cream

When I saw this no-cook ice cream recipe, I was inspired to use up a bunch of limes sitting on the kitchen counter, before they got too wrinkled and dry! Also, to make something that reminded me of key lime pie, minus the eggs and custard-making procedure, and the crust. The result was refreshing, like […]

Elderflower & crème fraîche ice cream

I’m a fiend for elderflower-flavored goodies — the aroma reminds me of British gardens, not to mention the lushness of spring, and relief from the heat of summer. The weather is getting hot over here, so I find it high time to make an ice cream with this most refreshing of floral extracts.

Passion fruit ice cream

Oh, sure, passion fruit sorbet is yummy and popular. But what if you, I or any one of our friends want some creaminess to counter passion fruit’s extraordinary tartness? Here I present passion fruit ice cream.

dulce de leche + ice cream

Appropriate uses for dulce de leche: Thinly spread on crêpes. Thickly spread to sandwich two butter cookies. A generous dollop in coffee. Over fruit (bananas, mangoes), sprinkled with chopped peanuts. On and in ice cream, of course. Inappropriate uses for dulce de leche: Spackling compound (too sticky). A treat for your cat (unhealthy). Ignored on […]
