Attention All Bloggers! Testers (Tasters) Wanted…

Mint scoop The deadline for finishing the book is fast approaching, and while we’re busy testing the recipes here, I need some help.

Maybe you also need an excuse to make a sweet treat!!!

Many of you have made some of these recipes, and I appreciate your feedback. However, I haven’t had much feedback on other recipes.

Ice Cream PartySo… To make this interesting, I would like to suggest a food event, an Ice Cream Party, to all those who have a benevolent heart, an inclination toward sweet things and a wish to make them:

Make one (or more) of the following recipes (don’t leave it too late!), write about the experience on your blog (including any suggested changes) by 25th of November, put a link here, email me at kfionnm at icecreamireland dot com with the URL of the post, and I will –

  • Post a round-up of all the entries including links to your site
  • Include a credit to you in the book
  • Send a free copy of the book (when it’s published in April) to the 5 best posts
  • I’m trying to negotiate with my brother for some Ice Cream Ireland Official Tester/Taster t-shirts, and if that comes off they might find their way to you as well (no promises yet, I’ll keep you posted)

Sound good?

Here are the recipes, and some are very easy, some complicated. (I will change this as we go, since we don’t want everyone doing the same recipe):

First come first served!!!

(If you don’t have a blog, email me with your experience!)

I appreciate your help and would also appreciate if you could help me get the word out!

  1. My son and I will try the gourmet Chocolate Crust a try and the Extreme Cocoa, there is no measurement next to the milk, is that ml? I will need to convert here in the states, also is the vanilla essence the same as vanilla extract?? thanks.

  2. I’ll be helping my mom out (as she mentioned above) when she visits and we have our ice cream creating weekend. I’ll be voting to try the Strawberry & Sage flavor though, since I favor fruit flavors as opposed to the chocolate ones that she’s a fan of. 🙂
    We’ll let you know how it goes!!!

  3. I think we’ll try the Strawberry and Sage one too given that we have a huge sage bush out the front and strawberries were one of the few things to grow for me this year.

  4. Wow, you can count on me for sure! I’ll take any opportunity to make ice cream. I’ll probably give the gelato alla crema a shot, and maybe (mmmm….) the chocolate coffee bean one too.

  5. Ooh! I never refuse the chance to be OCD in the kitchen! I’m on it!! With such tasty results, as well! I LOVE that the recipes are Metric!! My favorite!!

    I will try: Cinnamon, Cardamom Honey, and Extreme Cocoa.

    We don’t have to post our before and after weight, do we? 😀 I know I will enjoy this! 😀 Thanks for the opportunity!

  6. I will try Cardamom and Honey but will not use refined sugar. It is a poison. Strong words I know but eating refined sugar robs the body of vital vitamins and minerals in order to assimilate it.
    These vitamins and minerals are intact in unrefined traditional sweeteners like Rapadura (dehydrated sugar cane juice), maple syrup, maple sugar, palm sugar and honey.

    You can have your ice cream and eat it. No guilt. Using rapadura, whole raw egg yolks and cream (even better if unpasteurised), this food is actually a nutrient dense health food. True!

    The taste of unrefined sugars is by far superior and no carpet tongue, sore tummy or sugar high and crash.

  7. Wow, everybody! This is great! Nourisher – I’ll be delighted to hear how you get on with a sugar substitute. If you use a liquid sweetener such as maple syrup, you might well need to up the amount of cream to make up for the solid content you lose with the sugar…

  8. Oh, sure, I miss a few days and I miss this!
    I guess I’ll have to wait until the next go-round, though I think the cinnamon would be wonderful with my Thanksgiving pie!

  9. Torturers! This is worse then water boarding! Make ice cream AND eat it!? The nerve.

    And I’ve always thought of my Irish ancestors as warm hearted souls.

    Ok, alright, I’ll make the cinnamon ice cream and report back.

  10. I will be happy to make the Gelato alla Crema and the Coconut and Rum Ice Cream. These are two of my favorites. I just bought a litre of beautiful organic cream the other day and have been trying to figure out how to use it all. This is perfect!

  11. Really great fun. Are you including a conversion chart in the book?? It would be wonderful if you did, the results would be so exact and uniform that way. Delicious recipes, we will be trying more. Thanks for the fun.

  12. Hi,
    as I am in New Zealand, i will try the manuka honey and orange blossom ice cream.
    I will let you know how well liked it was!
    But you may want to change the picture of the ice cream, as it is accompanied by apple blossoms…;-)

  13. Ah, if only I had an ice cream maker! I once made ice cream in a large plastic bag filled with ice, and it actually turned out! I think I’ll try one of your sauces or your hot chocolate–they all look divine!
