I’m enjoying our new ice cream maker. Yesterday I worked on my second creation and anticipate trying it out sometime tomorrow. Yes, this one takes a while because it involves cooking a custard and cooling for 8 hours (which was last night). I won’t get home until this evening to put it in the machine to churn, and then it has to be frozen for several more hours until it’s ready to eat. I think it will be worth it though. What kind is it? Salted Butter Caramel Ice Cream. I can’t wait to try it.

Now, if you’re like most people I’ve talked to about this, you’re probably going to scrunch up your face when I tell you what kind I want to try making next. Candied Bacon Ice Cream. Yes, that’s right, I said bacon. Sounds crazy, I know, but there’s something magical about salt and sweet to me, so we’re gonna give it a shot – probably only a pint of it to be safe – but we’ll at least try.

What kind of crazy ice cream concoctions can you come up with for me to try next? I’ll take your ideas into culinary consideration.
