Remember when we were kids and going out for an ice cream was a magical experience? One lick of your cone and it felt like all was good in the world. And then, fast forward 20-plus years, eating ice cream transforms from an experience of pure joy to the harsh reality that you're going to have to spend an extra 30 minutes at the gym. It's sad, but true. Ice cream as an adult is just not as fun as ice cream is when you're a kid. But the guys at The Curious Creamery might be changing that dreary fact (whether or not that's their intention).
The Curious Creamery is a new concept in ice cream making that lets you make a pint of ice cream INSIDE the very pint that you'll be eating it from (unless, of course, you're civilized enough to use bowls). The whole reason for this concept is to make homemade ice cream available to everyone -- not just those of us who are fortunate to own their own ice cream maker.
It's sort of magical and it works like this: pour ice-cold liquid into the pint up to the indicated level (whether you choose to use heavy cream, water or tea), stir in the activator creamery base mix (we have no idea what is in this, but we're pretty sure that's where the magic happens) and then mix with an egg beater until it rises up to nearly the top of the pint (about 3-7 minutes). It basically feels like you're making homemade whipped cream. Put the top on and pop the pint in the freezer. In 2-6 hours, homemade ice cream will be yours.
Now, we would be lying to you if we told you this ice cream was as good as, say, a pint of Ben & Jerry's, because it's just not. But it's ice cream. That you made. In just a matter of minutes. So, there's that.
