So yeah, this blog is supposed to be about being frugal: using things up, saving money, etc. etc. So I suppose you are wondering, “why is it that time after time this woman is showing us recipes with expensive ingredients – I mean creme fraiche for godssake?” Really, I had good intentions of sharing my experiences using up the odd ingredients laying around my kitchen. But somehow, last night’s pizza debacle – which started off with good intentions of using up a pound of lamb sausage and half a bag of frozen spinach – did not make for good eats (oy – definitely not), let alone good reads. So today, on a frigid day in January, I’m sharing something a little more fun – Creme Fraiche ice cream.
Creamy and tart and absolutely wonderful; this lemony ice cream is out of this world. Its fruity tang is perfect for summer. Which is exactly when I made it… And it’s been sitting in a non-descript tupperware buried in my freezer for months. Trust me, this speaks much more about my forgetful nature than it does of the quality of the ice cream. I brought it out of its hibernation last night. Swoon! My beloved ice cream, how could I have forgotten you?! Quite simply, this ice cream is potentially one of the best desserts I’ve ever made. You should make it too.
