Ice Cream Contest

I entered this contest with the above ice cream. Rosemary-lime Sparkle. It's really, really good (am I being vain? Well, if you wish you can make it and see for yourself)! It's also quite good with basil in it, but I prefer the rosemary. Yum! The recipe is also here, but perhaps I'll post it in a better format later. Anyway, you may vote for me if you are so inclined.

[Don't you always feel like you sound too perky when you use exclamation points? But how else to express the exhuberance I so often wish to convey? :)]

Update: here is the recipe:

Rosemary-Lime Sparkle Ice Cream
7-10 sprigs fresh rosemary
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 cups club soda

Strip rosemary leaves from stems and place in small mixing bowl. Add the sugar, milk, and cream; stir to combine. Put bowl in refrigerator and allow flavors to blend for 30 minutes.

Pour rosemary-cream mixture into a blender; blend till smooth. (The rosemary leaves should look like fine green flecks in the cream mixture.) Add lime juice and club soda. Stir well.


Process in ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately, or place in freezer to ripen for a few hours longer. Garnish with sprigs of fresh rosemary.

  1. Mmm. I voted that I'd like 2, maybe 3 scoops.
    You're so ambitious to enter into a contest. Good form!
    If you win, I'd like to be included in the exclusive trip around the world-prize.
