It won`t be to long now and it will be ice cream season again for me. Day in and day out, I buy vanilla because you can do so much with it. Rootbeer floats, hot apple pie ala mode or cherry. But then, every once in a while, I have to have peaches and cream. That stuff is so good it`s should be a sin to eat it.
Here is a quick and easy recipe from Nigella Lawson:
Who says we have to wait for summer?
Margarita Ice cream
Ingredients 1/2 cup lime juice 2 tablespoons tequila 3 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Cointreau or Triple Sec) 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar 2 cups heavy cream Directions Pour the lime juice, tequila and orange liqueur into a bowl and stir in the sugar to dissolve.
Add the cream and then softly whip until thick and smooth but not stiff.
Spoon into an airtight container to freeze overnight. This ice cream does not need ripening (softening before serving), as it will not freeze too hard and melts speedily and voluptuously.
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
That sounds good flora. xrowanbraex I love any kind of Irish anything. LOL..
I am back in ice cream habit. Crap like every eve go to the ice cream shop- vanilla cone, yesterday was cherry sunday and now just thinking about it is creating that addiction sensation. I am saying no, no!
My favorite is Peach Melba - from Kopp's in Milwaukee. I haven't been up their in years, so I don't know if it is still available, but it was wonderful! A nice peach custard with some peach chunks and a raspberry ribbon swirled throughout! Heaven!
