Salted Caramel Ice Cream


This cool dessert should be most welcomed in any household during this hot, humid and hazy weather.  We are experiencing a very hot spell in this part of the world and this can be choking at times more so if people were to adopt 'open burning' in their compounds.   This salted caramel is a fun flavour to make and I like it best, topped with some caramel sauce and a dash of freshly ground seasalt.......an amazing flavour!

Please note that my blog has 'moved house' and my new domain name is  www.nofrillsrecipes.com and I would appreciate that you update my home url at your site.  Thanks and do have a nice weekend ahead!

  9. These few weeks are so hot. Most of the river at the southern part are almost dry up. And a lot of young durian trees already dead. Our friends here working very hard everyday to get water from nearby river to their orchard. Stressful task but have no other choice. Your ice cream sounds just perfect. Wish I can have it every day. :o)
