Well, I decided to try something a little different.
I fired up my Vita-Mix mixer–the mixer that can chop wood!*–threw in some cream, sugar, frozen pineapple, a fresh orange, ice, and ginger, and put it on ‘purée’ for a minute or so.
This yielded a thick liquid that tasted absolutely amazing. I poured it into a Tupperware and bunged it into the freezer, stirring it occasionally to break up ice crystals.
If it freezes well, I will have made my first home-made ice cream: orange-pineapple-ginger flavour! (And if not, I will have made a really interesting smoothie…)
The experimentation will continue. I have mint extract and chocolate chips; I need to go to the store and get some wasabi.
