Ah, buttermilk!  This has been a buttermilk summer.  We’ve had it in ice cream, panna cotta, dressings, marinades, baked goods, and much more, and I haven’t yet tired of it.

Possibly the only thing better than buttermilk alone is buttermilk plus blueberries, and we’ve gotten plenty of those too–bumper crop this year.  Ah, buttermilk!  Ah, blueberries!  Ah, summer!

The pictured recipe for Buttermilk Ice Cream comes originally from Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones, the cookbook from the legendary Bi-Rite Creamery in San Francisco.  You can get a full analysis and read a full review of the book on CookShelf, the cookbook-rating app, available for both  iPhone/iPad and Android devices.

Today, adventures on the frontiers of homemade ice cream: black pepper, basil and pine nut, onion-balsamic.  NPR Kitchen Window story here.

My favorite was the black pepper, which was subtle and strange and distinctly its own species.  I liked the basil and pine nut for its herbal impact, while the onion-balsamic was just plain wacky.

If you have a funky ice cream you adore, do share!  I’d love to hear about it.

I brought two kitchen utensils from home to our place in Vermont:  the immersion blender because I can’t live without it, and the popsicle maker, because I don’t want to.

I also brought a new book–Perfect Pops: The 50 Best Classic & Cool Treats–which turned out to be full of beguiling, unconventional popsicle formulae.  The only problem is that now I am being called upon for a repeat performance.
