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.
