Delicious recipes... but raw eggs?
My husband was doubtful that homedmade ice cream would be any good as he had tried it in the past and it was icy but was willing to try it again. I bought this book based on recommendations that I read. So far we have made the heath bar crunch and the basic sweet cream w/ chocolate chips. We made the heath bar crunch first- it was good but had a slightly flat taste- also the heath bar pieces seemed a little skimpy compared to what I remember in the store bought Ben & Jerrys's. The second batch, chocolate chip, came out a little better, I think because I added a pinch of salt. Although most recipes do not call for salt- I think the recipes can benefit by a pinch it helps to bring out the flavor. The only other thing I wanted to add here is that I was surprised that most of the recipes called for 'raw egg'- none of the prior reviews had mentioned that and think it is worth mentioning due to the health risks for certain people. Good tips though on adding fruits, and fudge and carmel sauces. Interesting background on how they got started. The book is worth buying but just beware of the raw eggs...there is a recipe for sweet cream that does not have any eggs but they indicate that you need to eat immediately as it does not store well without eggs (i.e. ice crystals are formed).
