Have you heard? I got an ice cream maker! So this was prompted by these gorgeous ice cream bowls I got for Mother's Day. They are just like my mother-in-laws, though a bit larger as everything is in this era, including our butts... oh, where was I going with that?
Ok, so here is my first attempt at ice cream. This is full-fat, simple chocolate. It was yummy. Though it is obviously my first attempt. The ground up chocolate pieces didn't melt completely probably because I was afraid to burn the milk so I didn't get it hot enough (should have used the thermometer). So there are little gritty pieces of chocolate in there. Aside from the texture it was really delicious.
Attempt #2 is freezing as we speak. Moderately-fat vanilla. I can already tell it's a little too vanilla-y but is quite yummy! Attempt #3 will be Pink Grapefruit Sorbet this weekend if I can find some weird ingredient- Orgeat Syrup.
