A slight diversion from knitting this weekend - I indulged my fascination with Japanese sweets and tried the Green Tea Ice powder (from the Jap Grocery store Maruyu on Clarence Street).

This version came with English directions which were surprisingly easy to follow, despite some amusing phrases such as 'Whip to a thick.'

Basically you add milk and an egg yolk to the powder and 'whip to a thick'. Like so.

The only thing I struggled with was fitting it in our freezer.

A few hours later, wahla.

A bit more crumbly compared to normal ice cream, but tastes REALLY GOOD!

Next up, the Vermont Curry (with a touch of apple and honey). Will keep you posted.

Back to knitting.
