When did I start appreciating vanilla ice cream?
I have always been a chocolate person. Plain chocolate ice cream all the way.
But somewhere, sometime, somehow, my tastebuds got acquainted with flavours some would call exotic, or just plain weird.
Whatever. Sometimes my mind orders certain ingredients, textures, flavours to be combined in one plate and I must deliver.
So tonight, I wanted sesame ice cream. Which is probably why I keep a tub of vanilla ice cream in the freezer because i can do more things with it.
Like, in espresso sauce for affogato. Chocolate pieces for simulated mcflurry. Over graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallow for smores ala mode.
There’s nothing fancy in this cup, really. I have vanilla ice cream and sprinkled black sesame seeds over it.
I think next time I will process the seeds to release the flavours some more.
It’s quite tasty as it is!
