Ice cream, again--

Made ice cream last night with some of the mint from my front yard. Mostly the chocolate mint plant, which has a very subdued mint element (not a lot of menthol). The results were tasty, but to my mind a bit more of a sweet cream flavor than a mint flavor. Maybe I'll try again and just use the really strong flavored stuff next time, but it was a good experiment.

Ice cream maker didn't survive :(

Noooooo, poor ice cream maker!

Mint smells great. It's still one of my strongest memories from visiting the house, but I guess that's because smell's so tied to memory. Homemade mint ice cream sounds delicious. ^^

Ach, well, you get what you pay for at Goodwill. Maybe I'll ask for a new one for Christmas. Home-made ice cream in general is wonderful, but I haven't quite got the hang of it yet...

Do you have a KitchenAide stand mixer? There's an ice cream attachment for those, and you know the motor's strong enough.

You know, I don't. I've never found high-quality stand-up mixers at Goodwill on the same day that I had any money at all.

Hey, that's great to know. I have the mixer and no ice cream machine. I gotta check it out. =3
