I tried two recipes: Cuban Cigar Ice Cream, which sounded quite intriguing with liquid smoke and coffee flavor. You start with the Salted Caramel Ice Cream Base. The directions call for milk, cream and “1/4 cups” granulated sugar. 1/4 cups? Usually you need a very sweet base because freezing mutes the flavors. Is this a typo? It must be, because the standard base calls for 1 and 1/4 cups of sugar. However this mistake is repeated in ALL the other bases: chocolate, yogurt, chocolate-hazelnut base (as another review pointed out, this also contains no chocolate) Foie Gras and Olive Oil & Rosemary. Silly me, I followed the directions and had to throw that batch away.
Next attempt: Bourbon Pecan Pie. Sounds great, right? This one uses the Plain Custard Base, so I’ve got the right amount of sugar this time. Then you toast 1/2 cup pecans in a stick of butter. Hmmm, seems like a lot of butter. Set aside to cool. Then, in a saucepan, cook corn syrup with a little salt until “the mixture is candy-coated and sticky.” Until what is candy-coated? Am I supposed to add the pecans? It doesn’t say. After you freeze, it says to add the pecans to the ice cream, but it never says what to do with the corn syrup candy. Well, except to “Set aside to cool.” Really? That is a bad idea.
What I actually did was pour off the excess grease, mix the nuts into the candy and turn it out onto waxed paper, like I would a praline, before it hardened. Which it did. If I had left the candy in the saucepan, as the directions said, it would have hardened into a solid chunk.Read more ›
I've had much better luck with Jeni's Homemade Ice Cream recipes. Her book is great and you can get her recipes online... Both the making (easy) and texture have been better than my experience thus far. I don't think I'll go through the bother of trying another ice cream recipe from Coolhaus.. but will try to cookies..
