Ice Cream Flight #2 at Jordan’s Creamery!

Keeping it short and sweet with this post since I’m behind. You can expect the beginnings of an exciting series this Friday though!

Learn about last month’s flight here!

Flavor #1 – Teaberry – It’s exactly like Pepto-Bismol! Since I like that flavor, it was charming, particularly with the creaminess of ice cream. But I’m so glad I just had a small scoop…not my favorite, LOL!

Flavor #2 – White Sangria with strawberries, pineapple & cherries – Full of dried fruits aka fruitcake and a clearly alcoholic base, this was kind of fun, but honestly, not my favorite thing. I’m pretty picky about mix-ins and this was clever but not something I’d normally go for, although the cherry was quite tasty.

Flavor #3 – Mojito with organic mint leaves- Oh my goodness. It’s kinda minty, kinda alcoholy and absolutely delicious. More please!  So refreshing.

Flavor #4 – Mascarpone & sweet cream with red raspberry swirl- Super delicious, creamy and cheesy. I love mascarpone cheese and it’s absolutely perfect as a creamy ice cream. It’s great alone and as a base for fruity goodness.

Very glad we went – I’d order mascarpone and mojito again in a heartbeat!

And while we were there, Ross got to get kettle cracked corn again, this time in a regular waffle cone, and he was well enough to eat it all! He said the cone wasn’t super fresh but was very tasty. And he loved the ice cream of course. 🙂

Thanks again, Jordan’s! We’ll be back!

The Art of Ice Cream (& Where to Find It)

Making ice cream isn’t easy. I knew this, of course. I haven’t made ice cream often. Once I helped a friend hand crank their old-fashioned ice cream maker. A few other times, I used a soft serve ice cream maker my mother was given as a gift but never took advantage of (and ultimately let me have). And a couple of other times, I’ve used the ice cream ball that my husband purchased for me for Christmas a few years ago. It’s not the most efficient way to make hard ice cream, but it’s one of the most fun, so I insisted I wanted it, of course. 🙂 And there was that one other time that I followed a recipe for ice cream made in the freezer without a machine….despite all of my substitutions and improvisations, it came out pretty well.
