Miso Ice Cream

An ice cream that’s noted to taste like “a cross between miso soup, soy sauce, and salted caramel”. While not on the top of my list of “desserts to try before I die,” I can definitely see the merit behind the flavors. Imagine serving this beside something a bit more sweet, a slice of apple pie maybe, or some cookies, or slapped on some cake? The recipe is available in its entirety on our friend Stef’s blog, for you courageous folks who wish to give its creation a try!

Ice cream that tastes like a cross between miso soup, soy sauce, and salted caramel can shock people.  You’ll find that most will not want a super-sized waffle cone of miso ice cream.  Instead, miso ice cream is best served alongside another dessert.  A small dollop of miso ice cream would be a welcomed addition to a pear torte, an apple cobbler, or a plate of gingersnap cookies.  It could also be piled on top or on the side of your favorite Asian-inspired cupcake (you’ll see my pick in the next post).
