With school back in full swing, I’m afraid I don’t have much time to be making new ice cream. But that doesn’t stop me from eating it!
Today was a big day, the first of many days in which I will spend making ice cream. With high hopes, I set out my ingredients and got to work. This was a custard-based vanilla that seemed totally normal.
Right off the bat, I had to make some adjustments because I don’t own whole vanilla beans (I have no clue where I would even acquire a vanilla bean). So instead I put in vanilla bean paste, which was as close as I could get. It was supposed to simmer for 30 minutes, but that seemed a little excessive being that I wasn’t trying to extract the flavor from a bean.
Next up, added 1 egg, 2 egg yolks and some sugar to a bowl and beat until it was a pale yellow.
Then you had to temper the milk/cream into the eggs, so they wouldn’t scramble. All seemed to be going well, I was making my first ice cream!
But, I spoke too soon.
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVE ICE CREAM. I could probably eat it for every meal, but that isn’t a good idea. But I do eat ice cream whenever the opportunity presents itself. There is never a bad time for ice cream, right?
So, on my reviews page, I will give you my honest opinion on the ice cream I’ve had, either straight outta the pint or from a creamery. I want you to enjoy ice cream as much as possible, and there is nothing worse than having your expectations crushed by an ice cream that doesn’t live up to the hype. So sit back, and get ready to eat vicariously!
Hello new friend! Welcome to my little scoop of the Internet.
