Beets, Mascarpone, Orange Zest and Poppy Seeds.
There it is – in all its technicolor glory. If you are an avid Office watcher, than you will likely recall the episode where Dwight is standing against a glass storefront in the mall with blood-stained hands (that turn out to be beet stained). That’s what I looked like night before last. Luckily, they were back to normal in the morning.
This ice cream was so good that I already want more, and I’m thinking that it deserves a place on the Christmas ice cream list. So I may just get a bushel of beets and roast them all and get really bloody – although I’m not sure I have the freezer space for a couple of gallons of beet puree.
And if it’s that close by, I just might be a bit too tempted.
Seriously, buy this book. Or get on the Christmas list. Or just live vicariously through this blog. Or pick up a pint in a few choice locations for a whopping $10 a pint. (Straub’s carries a few flavors locally if you’re interested, and so does Whole Foods.)
