  1. I am surprised that my hurricane hardened and remelted coconut has not suffered as much as I had feared. Yes, it is a bit icy. Eleven hours without power does that to one. I only wish the coconut flavor were a bit more pronounced. I could taste the coconut in the mix, but when frozen it is much more subtle. It is also a bit sweeter than I would like. I have had worse.
  2. Ask the restaurant kitchen, report back.

  4. I made Rose Levy Beranbaum's coconut ice cream. All did not go well. I spun the mix and consigned it to the blast freezer. Went to bed. Then the power went out for eleven hours. Not sure if it is even worth respinning. But it does taste like coconut.
  5. Pasteurization varies from country to country. @nathanm has time/temperature ice cream curves for the US in volume 1 of Modernist Cuisine. @Ruben Porto has British ice cream pasteurization information on his website. I'm sure there is some standard for Portugal.
  6. Both actually. I neglected to bolt the door. Blast freezers don't do well without electricity. I was not expecting the weather that we got. But after the storm passed it was a lovely, clear, sunny summer evening...until the sun went down and I sat with a camp lantern reading The Economist. Snuggling with a Party Size Pandemic Size bag of Cape Cod potato chips.
  7. Replacements.com is not cheap but good stuff. I recommend them highly.
  8. I shall never again make ice cream in a hurricane.
  9. I have to note you discriminate against those of us who have neither cars nor cellphones. Though perhaps we are not your target demographic.
  10. Shoprite had no limes. The trip wasn't a total bust, I needed sour cream.
