The vanilla ice cream was delicious. Though, to be honest, it was a little grainy and icy. I'm sure that's because of the lack of three egg yolks and the half and half substitution for the heavy cream. The photos don't do it justice. It's my uneaten bowl (orange) and the bowls of the boy and girl. They didn't seem to mind the iciness at all. It is served with some strawberry rhubarb sauce.
My next experiment is Alton Brown's Banana Ice Cream. It calls for corn syrup, which I think helps with the consistency. I may substitute some maple syrup for some of the corn syrup. I think it will be tasty.
I found a local vendor, similar to my delivery vendor, who sells organic fruits and veggies. And meats and cheese and loads of other stuff, but I went for one reason only. Rhubarb. As posted before, I love rhubarb. He had it on sale this week. I bought four pounds. Yup, four. I'll use one this week and dice and then freeze the other three. Good thing I have a second freezer.
I'm all ready for my TWD post tomorrow. And I can't wait to see what the new choice is.
