Ice Cream With Black Pepper and Single Malt Scotch

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Chef Regina V. Smith

This recipe was published in Lucy Waverman's cooking column in the Globe and Mail some time ago. You have to like Scotch to like this recipe. Use a mellow single malt, not a bold peaty one. Combination of vanilla, scotch and black pepper imparts a caramel like flavour. This is as fast a desert as you can make.

I really wanted to like this recipe! But it just wasn't to my taste. My fault, I'm sure. Think I'll to have to try it again! Perhaps I needed a better Scotch. I'll be working on it! Chef Regina, thanks for posting . . . . . Janet
