A Seattle-famous ice cream connoisseur shares the scoop on how to make seasonal, gourmet-quality ice cream using ingredients found at your local market
When Molly Moon Neitzel opened the first of her five boutique ice cream scoop shops in the spring of 2008, it was an instant hit with the folks of Seattle. Customers have been happily lining up for a cone or signature sundae ever since, with major publications like Bon Appétit and Travel + Leisure hailing Molly Moon’s Ice Cream shops as some of the best in the United States. And now, you can make Molly’s delicious ice creams, sorbets, and toppings at home!
Arranged in the book by season—with the focus on using local, fresh fruit and herbs in combinations that are both familiar and surprising—you will find recipes for most flavors imaginable and even those a little unimaginable. From childhood favorites to avant-garde, adult-only fare, including the classic Vanilla Bean to the exotic Cardamom to the adventurous Balsamic Strawberry and the comforting Maple Bacon (try a scoop on oatmeal for a special winter breakfast treat!), these ice creams and sorbets are both simple and fun to make. Of course, they’re even more fun to eat!
