Buck and I have been in the mood for homemade ice cream lately and, lo and behold, in Sunday's newspaper a whole page of TNT recipes from area cooks was there for us to drool over.
I scanned the recipes and recognized some of the names of the people who submitted them. Made a note of the ones I wanted to try and set the paper aside.
Yesterday, I noticed that a correction to one of the recipes had been printed. I didn't get around to comparing the corrected recipe to the one originally printed until today. When I did, I laughed out loud.
The original "coconut" ice cream recipe had an ingredients list of:
33 cups sugar
11 quarts half-and-half
1 tsp. vanilla
Wow! That'd be rich and SWEET ice cream. And how did that make it coconut? The corrected recipe "included" cream of coconut (well, duh), a package of frozen shredded coconut, and reduced the sugar to 3 cups and the half-and-half to 1 quart. More like it.
The whole thing hit my funny bone just right.
