A Christmas ice cream?

My apologies… nothing will be happening on this blog for a while as I will be leaving town soon.

I haven’t stopped thinking about ice cream flavors though. In addition to the Eggnog and Christmas Plum Pudding flavors that I’d like to make when I return, I am also toying with the idea of a red, white and green Christmas-themed ice cream terrine.

I suppose that the most obvious flavors for the RED ice cream would be cranberry, cherry or beet, and peppermint or pistachio for GREEN, but I want to do flavors that I haven’t done before so …..

Here’s an idea with Asian flavors!

Red Bean & Pandan Ice Creams topped with Lychee Caviar!

Lychee Caviar, you say? Yep. More kitchen experiments to look forward to! :)

Mango, Banana, and Tangerine…

I bought a case of mangoes this week and decided to make my second Ice Cream Terrine with Jamaican flavors. 

Mango: Sweet mangoes with ginger, dark rum and allspice.

Banana: Bananas caramelized with brown sugar and cinnamon, mixed with toasted coconut.

Tangerine: A blend of tangerine juice and coconut rum, with dark chocolate freckles.

As every experiment is a learning process, I know that if I made these ice creams again I would do a few things differently. These are all way too sweet!

When I post the recipes for these flavors, they will be modified from the ones that I originally used.

Next: Mango-Pineapple Gingerbeer Sorbet.

P.S. Wow, Ackee ice cream exists!
