Recipe For Pickled Ginger Ice Cream

I am not sure what I was thinking of when I decided to make an ice cream using pickled ginger. I had made my own pickled ginger to use up some fresh ginger before it went to waste and as I was on an ice cream making mission, the next logical progression in my thought pattern was to make an ice cream flavoured with pickled ginger. Surprisingly, the ginger taste is quite refreshing and when served with a chocolate based cake, truly amazing. If you don’t want to make pickled ginger for ice cream, do make it to go with your next sushi or fish meal – it is so much better than the store bought variety.

what is the most unusual ice cream flavour you have tried?

    1. I bought some licourice root powder to make a licourice ice cream, but there was something not quite right with the powder. I will have to look for something else to use, as I so want to make this flavour 🙂
