My view, along with the quilting group ladies: Very creamy!!!! (I was glad I didn't use 10 egg yolks. If I would have had fresh pears, I would of use them.) I will be making this again, next summer. We all liked this recipe.
|Here all we had left over, for my friend's husband.|
Well we did it, a month worth of ice cream ideas! Each recipe I made, was new for me and I am glad for the recipes I chose to make. I made strawberry, pumpkin, chocolate and pear ginger ice creams. I finally made caramel sauce for the first time. Also I did taste each by having a small bowl full and shared the rest with family and friends, so nope I didn't gain any weight. Yea for that! Next summer, I will try and make some of the recipes, that I didn't this year! It was fun to make them and to know that I didn't have to have an ice cream maker. Thanks for following along with me on this 'Month of Ice Cream'!
