The food cart season starts for me today and I literally feel like I'm getting on a roller coaster and I won't be able to get off until October. I am hopeful that things will be a little easier this year (knock on wood) since it is my second full season. I'm going to try to keep up with the food blogging but I can't make any promises. There will definitely be some posts about the cart.
For now, here's a little blurb about the ice cream I made with my new KitchenAid attachment. I used a recipe from Dana at Phat Duck but I chickened out. You are supposed to caramelize your sugar almost to the point of scorching blackness. This is a hard spot to reach and I have had many caramel disasters in my time, including burning parts of my own flesh, so I backed off too soon and my ice cream is only lightly caramelized. It was still delicious, though, and made perfect ice cream sandwiches on triple-chip cookies.And what to have with these treats? Hotdogs with cheddar, white onions, beer mustard and homemade corn relish and sandwich-sliced dill pickles on the side. Now I just want the 2 qts. to disappear quick so I can make more flavors. Who wants to come over for ice cream?
