We had chunks and we had curd. Why not combine? Citrus and chocolate is always a treat.Read More
Besides being the coolest, funniest person I know, my 13-year-old niece Aviva has turned out to be an Exquisite Courser! While I was visiting her over the holidays she busted out with this delicious treat:Read More
Adapted a cranberry ice cream recipe from Epicurious and made some sugar substitutions and, of course, added chocolate chunks. There's something about the tart cranberries mixed with the super creamy custard base that makes it super special, and the dark chocolate. For this I used 88% dark chocolate and I skipped the cinnamon stick that the original recipe calls for.
A few summers back I copied a beloved Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavor, Chunky Monkey with the standard chocolate chunks and walnuts. After making excessively sweet gluten-free brownies a few weeks ago, I decided to freeze them for a future experiment. The time came to take Chunky Monkey to the next level with banana, brownie bits and instead of walnuts - extra crunchy peanut butter! As easy to make as it is delicious - 5 minutes of prep time (if the brownies are already made, that is).Read More
Ate this creation to fast to photograph it! So good.
Based on this recipe's proportions, I did a few things differently.
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 large egg yolks
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
- 1 1/2 pounds fresh peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
Someone picked up the wrong almonds at the store, but they turned out soooo right!
This is basically the same recipe I’ve been using for Coconut Cherry Garcia gelato, but instead of cherries, add in a handful (maybe 1/3 cup?) of coarsely chopped tamari almonds. The sweet and salty really works. YUUUUUUM.
A friend was naming some bands at a recent jam band festival he attended, and this one sounded like it would make a fantastic ice cream flavor.
To make it, I used this trusty dark chocolate ice cream recipe and added hot pepper in the early stages and then chunks of banana and chocolate during the last 5 minutes it was churning in the gelato maker.
