Why did I write about the trip to the pumpkin patch last year? Because I was reminded of the memory after Aaron decided to take a pumpkin his sister brought him and create a recipe for homemade pumpkin pie ice cream with caramel and cinnamon. Here are the fruits of his labor, study and testing, of which I gladly partook.
I won’t give away his secrets, but he literally baked a pumpkin after removing the seeds, infused the essence of said pumpkin into his ice cream mixture, added rum with a variety of other flavors, and then put it into a commercial ice cream maker. It tasted like a frozen version of the first bite of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving.
