Salty Caramel Ice Cream Recipe
I have to admit that I'm a bit intrigued about the Jeni's ice cream craze. I mean, hooray for Jeni for making some interesting flavors and having a cult-like following. Unfortunately for us, the manufacturing for the product doesn't work well for an allergy family. Although, if we're looking at this in a positive light, maybe that's a blessing since it's a bit expensive and not so good for the waistline.
That being said, I'm pretty darn happy to have an ice cream maker and the ability to replicate some of her flavors. I love the combination of sweet and salty, so I thought that trying her Salty Caramel flavor sounded like a fun challenge. I still have some Sicilian salt from my parents' vacation last year, so it seems like a perfect place to use 1/2 teaspoon of this. Making caramel is not my forte, so it seemed like this would be a good challenge on that front as well.
I have to say, this was a fun Sunday project for me. It dirtied nearly every bowl in the house (um...slight exaggeration) and required reading through the directions thoroughly. That being said, it came together fairly quickly.
Rave reviews to this recipe all around. It was going to be hard to beat the key lime gelato....this one is right up there on the homemade sweet treat scale as well.
I love the blog, the bittenword and the link takes you to the recipe. I made it just as it states in their blog. And if you have a few minutes, wander around that blog a bit....it sure is a fun place to stop.
