I've made ice cream at home before (like the good little ice cream lover that I am) but the consistency has never been quite up to my liking. The desserts always turned out a bit harder than I prefer and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home claims to have a new DIY recipe to remedy this problem. I won't give away any secret ingredients - sorry! But I will say that her ice cream base is yum-tastic!
After going through the basics, the book is split up by season. Each season is filled with delectable recipes and then ends with some mouth-watering sundae suggestions (like what's pictured above). Here's some of my favorite flavor recipes:
- Spring: Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream
- Summer: Sweet Corn & Black Raspberry Ice Cream
- Autumn: Roasted Pumpkin Five-Spice Ice Cream
- Winter: Influenza RX Sorbet (citrus, honey, spices, and bourbon to cure the sniffles!)
Jeni Britton Bauer even includes recipes for macaroon ice cream sandwiches and homemade push-pops! I highly suggest this book for any ice cream aficionado or for those who want to test out their ice cream makers!
