I'm making this today:

The Art of Savory Ice Cream - Barnes & Noble Book Clubs

I added the peel of one lime to the infusion with the hot pepper--added about 1 tsp of black and pink peppercorns. Used 1 c whole milk, 1 c half-and-half, and 1-1/2 cup whipping cream. I grated 3 oz of dark chocolate, 1 oz white chocolate, and 2 oz of bittersweet chocolate. I added 2 T of instant coffee to that, and I'm using 1/3 c dutch cocoa, and, of course, the 2 tsp of cayenne. Hopefully, we'll like this. If I hadn't consumed the Kahlua (sp), I would add an ounce of that. Who else is making ice cream today?

My ice cream machine frosts up to much during humid weather; so I put it away until the fall.

Mine is one of those old-fashioned ones--you put a layer of ice, a layer of salt, a layer of ice...and add 2 c water. It works year around. I'm excited to taste this batch!

That ice cream is flipping WOW. I'm not sharing. I'm going to hide in the closet and eat it all by myself. Toasted almonds would've been a nice touch--but I didn't have any almonds here.

I too have the Cuisinart and a bottle of Zarex. Remember that? So last summer I made orange flavor slush. Still have some Zarex and am so tempted to make more for just me.

I do remember it, though mostly from traveling. I think it was always more of a northeastern product.

I love my little Cuisinart ice cream maker. I just keep the bowl in the freezer and whenever I have the time and ingredients, it's quick and easy to whip up some fruit sorbet.

THis is the one I have:


It uses 4 trays of ice cubes, salt, and is electric. I've had several of the ones where you put the container in the freezer. I like this one the best. At least I don't have to hand crank it!

That's the model I had prior to the Cuisinart. My wife's folks gave it to us and it worked well for many years until the motor finally just up and died one day. The corpse is still sitting on a shelf in the garage. I keep thinking maybe I'll fix it (yah, right ) and give it to our daughter when she gets her own place. Along with the old food processor and the old toaster oven and the old.....
