The weather for the last few days in New York has been miserable. Rainy, cold and even a bit of snow yesterday. Like everyone else in this city, I am just dying for some sunshine and warmth. Spring should have sprung by now so where is it!? I thought that making a summery ice cream would pull me out of my rainy-day blues. And it worked!
I got this ice cream maker earlier this week and I am already SO excited for the possibilities. I was a little worried that come summer I would never feel like baking with it already so hot out, but with this puppy I know I’ll always be able to crank up a cool delicious treat. The maker I got was under $30, easy to use, and in my opinion such an important thing to have in the kitchen. I really recommend getting one! You”ll never buy ice cream again!
Along with the machine I ordered a copy of “The Perfect Scoop” by David Lebovitz. I have heard such amazing things about it and it truly is a great resource. I adapted this recipe from one I found there. It called for oranges, but I chose to use honey tangerines instead. I was really happy with my first Ice Cream attempt. It reminds me of my favorite Ice Cream Man confection- The Creamsicle. a tangy orange popsicle with a creamy ice cream center. For a minute I felt like I was running across the lawn barefoot with sticky hands and a grin.
