Professional Minnesotan Garrison Keillor
is credited with saying sweet corn
is better than sex. Sooooo, sweet corn ice cream? That must be your own personal passport into heaven, right?Right. Last weekend my lovely friends Shaun and Erin helped me brave the waters of culinary exploration to create this version of summer in a bowl. We used this
recipe. And while it was a bit fussy (my strengths have never been yolk/white separation or tempering
) it is worth every blessed step. Also, it takes a while so you can drink a lot of wine, eat a lot of cheese and tell funny stories about emotionally needy dogs while you wait.
And it is so worth the wait! Insanely creamy, just the right amount of sweet and tasting exactly like the sweet corn you buy off the back of a truck, down a tiny dirt road on the Iowa border. So, so highly recommended.
Would you try sweet corn ice cream? What’s your favorite non-traditional ice cream flavor?
