Well, this is interesting. I pride myself in being second to none when it comes to licorice appreciation. But it's hard to decide how I feel about this ice cream. The recipe is well-written and is easy to scale. I divided it by four to make in my canister-type ice cream maker. I think this ice cream might actually be more suited in combination with other kinds of ice cream, for example something fruity. Anyway, thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. I'm glad I tried it. Edited to add that this was deliciously irresistable after firming up in the freezer overnight. Thank you again for the recipe!
