5.0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE Ice Cream Book, December 22, 2008
This review is from: The Ultimate Ice Cream Book: Over 500 Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, Drinks, And More (Paperback)
It really is the ultimate. I honestly can't think of a flavor of ice cream or sorbet that I'd like to try that isn't included in this book. There are lots of unusual flavors as well, and although some people seem really put off by the idea of corn or avocado ice cream, I can't wait to try them all! So far I've made strawberry ice cream, honey crunch ice cream (come on, you'll never find honey ice cream at the store!), mango sorbet, chocolate sorbet, apple cider sorbet, blackberry sorbet, peach sorbet, and pomegranate sorbet. I've made mostly sorbets because they are healthier and require less ingredients and time, but the ice creams I've tried so far have been really great, and the hardest part is choosing what to make next.

I've noticed some people complain that most of the ice cream recipes use eggs, and that they would like to make more egg-free ice creams. Well just take a look at the flavors that are offered in both custard and egg-free based recipes... most of the ingredients are practically the same minus the eggs! The only difference I've noticed is that the egg-free recipes use richer creams and half and halfs than the custard based ones who may use a larger ratio of milk as opposed to mainly creams. Use your judgement and your intuition. Try making the recipes without eggs! Just don't make a custard. A couple reviewers said they have and that the recipes worked just fine!

I've also noticed that several reviews criticize the author's use of flour and cornstarch in a few recipes as stabilizers for the custards. Now my philosophy is that if you would eat a pudding or custard with cornstarch (and believe me, that's what's in them!), why wouldn't you eat a FROZEN custard using the same natural thickener to help create a fabulous product? These are not chemical additives! Nonsense. Just buy this book and enjoy the delicious treats you'll make at home. And stop listening to those "know-it-alls" because clearly they don't know good ice cream when they try it.
