Reader reviews for Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home

Oh man. I just tried my first batch from this book, and is it ever GOOD! Great flavor, and pretty much the best texture I've ever gotten out of my ice cream maker. My only complaint is the ridiculous number of dirty dishes sitting in my sink...If you want to make ice cream at home, I recommend this book!

I've made ice cream at home before (like the good little ice cream lover that I am) but the consistency has never been quite up to my liking. The desserts always turned out a bit harder than I prefer and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home claims to have a new DIY recipe to remedy this problem. I won't give away any secret ingredients - sorry! But I will say that her ice cream base is yum-tastic!After going through the basics, the book is split up by season. Each season is filled with delectable recipes and then ends with some mouth-watering sundae suggestions. Here's some of my favorite flavor recipes: Spring: Savannah Buttermint Ice Cream Summer: Sweet Corn & Black Raspberry Ice Cream Autumn: Roasted Pumpkin Five-Spice Ice Cream Winter: Influenza RX Sorbet (citrus, honey, spices, and bourbon to cure the sniffles!)Jeni Britton Bauer even includes recipes for macaroon ice cream sandwiches and homemade push-pops! I highly suggest this book for any ice cream aficionado or for those who want to test out their ice cream makers!

I was led to Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home by the folks at The Bitten Word food blog. Like many, I had an ice cream maker gathering dust in the basement. While the 2 recipes I tried were yummy (Strawberry Buttermilk and Rhubarb), I still won't be making my own ice cream regularly. While her technique is easier than making custard with eggs, it is still too time consuming to do on a regular basis.
