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

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!
