Ice Cream

Of all ice cream everywhere my favourite has been and probably forever will be home made amaretto ice cream. In all due modesty, I make a mean frozen dairy treat. However, of the commercially available flavours, the gold star goes out to Greenwood Dairy's Bourbon Butter Pecan. (The more astute or inebriated of my readers may be sensing a theme here). However, I've had to lay off Greenwood's finest because it's only available in 2 and 1/2 gallon containers.

Recently, the local grocery store has been having Haagen Dazs more or less permanently on sale. And I've been feeling adventurous. We just had their Caramelized Pear and Toasted Pecan ice cream and it was just lovely. Reasonably rich, refreshing, lots of pear flavour and the crunch of the pecans makes for a nice contrast. I think we'll be having that again.

I am linking to the desert menu for the restaurant O'Chame. They have the most incredible Caramel Balsamic Gelato. Yes, it really is balsamic as in balsamic vinegar. Who would think a little vinegar would improve the taste of carmel ice cream? But it does. It is amazing.
