The challenge: halfway met? Maybe? Kinda? Sorta?

I was thrown a challenge by Tinymeat. It's a good challenge. I may still fulfill it. But in the meantime, here's one that may meet it part way. It's the homemade Oregon boysenberry ice cream post...

Aaah. AdRi brought home fresh berries. What to do. What to do. I've been itching to make ice cream.

Boysenberries, meet ice cream maker.

Core ingredient:

Add other tasty ingredients and tools:

This is where the magic happens:

Pour into bowl and set for a hard freeze:

People, you don't want to know how much sugar goes into ice cream to make it taste so good. Just count this as a once-in-awhile treat and you'll be okay.

And here's the trick: K.I.S.S.

As my first boss once very seriously told me, "That stands for Keep It Simple Stupid." Core ingredients for great ice cream are simple whole things.

I'll tell you: it tastes quite nice. But I'm very curious as to Blu's Green Tea Ice Cream.....

It's a good thing I don't have an ice cream maker.

I have no willpower.

Do check the Hollywood Farmer's Market for huckleberries.

MMMMMMMM goood!!!
I miss Boysenberries. I remember discovering Boysenberry syrup at iHop as a kid. They would bring around an asst. of flavors and I would allways go for the berry.

Have you ever had a green tea malt?

I will check HOllywood Farmer's Market: thank you for that tip. Willpower is an incredible thing, isn't it?

And no, I have never had a green tea malt. I haven't even had bubble tea. But I am so up for trying that stuff!

Lace it with arsenic and it's done.

3 C half and half (I know, really.)
1 C sugar (just following the recipe)
2 bags of Stash green chai tea cut open

in double boiler heat up half and half. add the tea. bring just to a boil, then cool and refridgerate 12 hours. strain cream mixture into icecream maker. churn until (? mine is supposed to turn itself off- but I'm working with NO directions here) it looks too good to resist. freeze for 2 hours. devour. mine was a little bit sweet- but it was, after all my first try.

the second batch was done in the same manner- but used Celestial Seasonings Mandarin Orange Spice tea.
(just as yummy!)
