    erhoads21's Note:

    This ice cream was created by me trying to make mint ice cream in a slight rush. Of course, i accidentally picked oregano instead of mint and made the whole recipe thinking i was cooking with mint. I'm not sure why exactly i didn't notice the distinct smell of oregano while it was cooking, but it was one of the best flavors of ice cream I've ever had! It was very smooth and also refreshing, it was a savory ice cream that was perfect for a summer evening, but it didn't have the cloying sweetness of other ice cream. Enjoy!
