Okay, maybe not. But if I knew how to write an ode, ice cream would sure deserve one. At any given time, our freezer has about six containers of ice cream.
Evan often says my brain is made of ice cream. If you opened up my head, all you’d find in there is ice cream. So he says. I happen to think there’s plenty of room in there for cake and mint dark chocolate. Yeah, I have my vices. But my love affair with ice cream is lifelong and constant.
Ever since we got an ice cream maker, we’ve been experimenting with lots of flavors. So far, we’ve tried Earl Grey tea, Italian basil, jasmine tea, mint, mango, and watermelon. The mint was the least exotic of the flavors we tried, but it had the best result, with the consistency and texture of real ice cream! Mmm, homemade ice cream.
It was so successful, we made it twice more, but on the third try, using the same type of mint leaves (we believe), the ice cream turned brown. Brown mint ice cream. Lovely. We’ve racked our brains trying to figure out why the ice cream turned brown when the mint we use is clearly green, and it didn’t turn brown the first two times.
If anyone has any idea about this mystery, please let us know. And feel free to share your thoughts on any new flavors we should try!
