We are the proud new owners of an ice cream maker – and we’re using the heck out of it.
We’ve never really had anything that even remotely made ice cream, so it’s just something we never did. I remember making it as a kid with the old bucket-and-rock-salt technique, but let me tell you – this thing is fancy. I feel very kitchen high-tech.
So, we’ve been experimenting! The plain old vanilla was first. After it turned out great, we tried strawberry – not bad either.
So I got brave. One of my favorite places in Tuscaloosa is Steel City Pops – just a popsicle place. They have a Pineapple Jalapeño popsicle that is to die for. Another one of our favorites in Tuscaloosa is Five – they have a Pineapple Jalapeño Margarita. It’s definitely a little different, but if you like spicy foods, it’s worth a try!
Those were my inspirations behind this recipe. Probably not for little kids, but it is an awesome grown-up treat!
