Ice-cream is one of the purest forms of happiness. Maybe that’s why Nobodies loved it so much.
It can be low-fat, full fat, gelato, sorbet, formed into balls, popsicles, mochi, fried, melted over finger, dripped onto your porch steps or straight from carton to mouth. It can float in soda, compliment pie, and turn a bad day good if you can find the chocolate-covered caramel balls that ass seem to freeze near the bottom.
I myself LOVE ice cream. I don’t have it often; it is one of the few foods I consume in moderation, but the unfortunate part is that I don’t do salt. Salt is necessary in baking for me, but if you give me French-fries I scoff because of the huge amount of salt. Salted caramels, salted chocolate, really salty soups, I just can’t do it, I find it unappetizing an unappealing.
However, sea-salt ice cream has become the exception.
I didn’t think I’d like it, but I when I realized I’d eaten, well, all of it over a few days, I felt no guilt whatsoever. It was good. Reeeeeally good. I can see why Roxas would think about it as much as killing heartless.
The boy will essentially rip a hole in time and space to get it.
SEA SALT ICE CREAM (Just because Roxas eats nothing but ice-cream doesn’t mean you can too)
¾ cup sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
~1 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
Blue and green food coloring
(You’ll need some popsicle molds and sticks or a big freezer-safe Tupperware)
In a mixer, with a whisk attachment, whisk the eggs until fluffy, which will take a few minutes. Add the sugar slowly as you whisk at a low speed, and then mix for a minute until blended. Pour in the milk, cream, vanilla and salt, and mix. Add a few. Like 2, drops of green food coloring and mix, then start adding blue until it gets to that aqua-y color you know and love and desire.
If you pour it into the popsicle molds, you’re set and just let them freeze (put some plastic wrap over the top and stick the stick down in for authenticity). If you put it in the Tupperware, about every hour give it a good stir.
(I tried putting it in an ice cream maker, but it never froze. If you think you can work some magic, do it and tell us if it worked)
