This one’s for all you spice lovers. I’m a big fan of spices but wasn’t sure that the combination I wanted to combine were meant for ice cream. I’ll say from the start that the flavour is actually really good and I’d encourage anyone that’s sceptical to give it a try.
What I added to this 5 spice ice cream
The controversial spice I added was Pepper sichuan (or Szechwan). This spice is made from berries that have a warm peppery fragrance, with citrus notes. The aftertaste provides a slightly numbing sensation on the tongue. Sichuan is commonly used in stirfrys and other meat dishes – a far cry from ice cream. I also included cinnamon sticks, star anise, nutmeg and ground cloves.
