my latest ice cream endeavor from jeni’s splendid ice creams at home was the sweet corn ice cream with black raspberry. yes, it was an oddball flavor, but i just had to try it! (mr. happy stuff has, so far, refused to taste it, as long as there is still kona stout in the house.) the verdict? once the raspberry sauce is in (and i just used red raspberries), you don’t really taste the corn. i actually like the corn ice cream flavor and sometimes try to scoop out bites without raspberry. the happy toddler thinks it’s all good too. my mother is visiting us and although she was skeptical (“won’t it just taste like frozen creamed corn?”) she was won over to the flavor once she tasted it. delicious! i really need to just buy my own copy of this book.
p.s. i just found out that a local purveyor of fine foods sells jeni’s by the pint and in ice cream sandwiches! i bought a pint (yike$$!) because i just had to find out how my homemade versions compare. i’ll let you know once we’ve tasted it!
