"The Perfect Scoop" by David Lebovitz on ice cream

I made his pineapple sorbet yesterday. Just pineapple chunks, water, and sugar (not simple syrup!) in the Blendtec. Great stuff. Very slightly grainy, but that's expected, and it wasn't objectionable at at all. I might play around with it a bit, if and when the weather gets warmer here in the Frozen North (of the U.S.). Pineapple-lime? Add a bit of tequila or white rum?

 

Any other ideas?

Hopefully your weather has gotten warmer since March! I was watching Masterchef Australia today, and one of the chefs added a chopped, seeded habanero to her pineapple sorbet, and served it with melon macerated in a ginger-mint syrup.

I'd try that recipe with the habanero except that my DH doesn't really like sorbet or sherbet or anything which isn't rich-tasting ice cream.  Maybe next time we have a group over at once.

 

My favorite DL ice cream recipes are the Aztec "Hot" Chocolate Ice Cream and the Orange-Szechwan Pepper Ice Cream, both of which are currently in the freezer.   However, I make them with a cornstarch base which nicely subs for whipping cream and eggs.  At least it's enough for us.

I've been making "his" Philadelphia-style vanilla ice cream, steeping star anise and cardamom pods along with the vanilla bean. Extrememly good.
