mint ice cream

mint chocolate chip ice cream

With all of the crazy amounts of mint that's growing in the garden, I had to think fast - what other mint recipes could I make?  Then I found an ice cream recipe that required three packed cups of the stuff.  Perfect!  This is a fabulous recipe, super creamy.  And, it didn't turn rock hard in the freezer, which always seems to happen when I make ice cream. 

But wouldn't you know, in the past week, the mint has grown so much you would have never guessed that any had been picked! I guess another batch of ice cream is forthcoming.
