I first had Blue Moon Ice Cream at the House of Flavors in Ludington, MI back in the 1970s. We lived in the East Coast where it wasn't available, but would usually visit family every summer and I would look forward to the Blue Moon Ice Cream every year. I took my 2 year old son a couple of summers ago for the same treat. It made such an impression that he recently asked me to buy him some. No go in these parts. Thankfully I found this recipe. This recipe nails it. I can't discern any difference. My son is now 4 and asks for me to make it all the time.
