  11. Hi, Cheah, beetroot by itself tastes a bit sour, isn't it, so this beetroot ice-cream must be very refreshing!An ice-cream maker here can be as cheap as just $20-$30 but I'm really curious how good they are compares to a good brand. Anyway, it is something that I'm hesitating to buy.

    1. The ice cream doesn't taste sour at all, really can't tell there's beet in it. I'm using a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so far so good.

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
