Ice Cream and a Movie!

So, first, and I’d like to thank [info]ldragoon for this one: If the RDJ Sherlock Holmes is House, MD, THIS Sherlock Holmes is LOST. It even has the horns. No time traveling. Yet. And this is definitely the Daniel Faraday version of Holmes–and oh, look! Smokey just made an appearance. If you have Netflix, it’s on Play Instantly, and you should all watch it for the lulz.

BUT WAIT NOW HE IS FENCING WITH PROTO DARTH VADER WHAT IS THIS I DON’T EVEN. Seriously, yes, I realize I’m spoiling but you need to see it for yourself.

Second, and more importantly, I’ve been experimenting with my ice cream maker. Sadly, tonight’s batch didn’t turn out– I tried to make vegan ice cream, and it didn’t even freeze– but yesterday’s did!


Earl Grey Ice Cream

Earl Grey Ice Cream

Ingredients
1 cup boiling water
4 Earl Grey Tea Bags
1/2 cup sugar
1 2/3 cups half & half
2 egg whites

Instructions

Steep 1 cup of tea with 2 tea bags
Take the hot tea and mix it with the sugar. Put it in a small saucepan and boil until the tea has been reduced to syrup.
Add the half & half, bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the syrup.
Steep two more tea bags in the hot milk and syrup mixture for 3-5 minutes.
Remove tea bags and chill mixture in fridge or freezer.
Whip two egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
Once mixture is cool, fold in egg whites.
Put in ice cream mixer and freeze according to ice cream mixer instructions.

I brought this to work today and it went over very well!

It kinda looks like mashed potatoes but it sounds delicious! I imagine you could do this with any kind of tea, yes? Such as honey bush, green or even Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice?

Presumably, yes! The only thing I would recommend is tasting it after you put in two tea bags and then adding more tea bags as necessary since some tea is stronger than others.

Hmm, I never considered doing something for the lulz...

Mmmm sounds delicious.

Also, what is half and half?

It's creamer made of equal parts milk and nondairy components, natch.

No, that's not quite right. It's half cream and half milk.

Oh. Well. Silly me for not bothering to check with google first.

No, it's 100% dairy. It's a mixure of half-cream and half-milk in the same container, for things like coffee or tea, or for cooking purposes.

What is the meaning of this? WHY ARE THERE DINOSAURS IN SHERLOCK HOLMES?!

BECAUSE THEY HAD TO BE MORE BADASS THAN RDJ.

In my opinion they terribly miscast Holmes here. He looks like a rat. And he's laughably short.

WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS WOMAN WEARING AH MY EYES

BIONIC SUIT. METAL DRAGON.

OH GOD WHAT IS THIS I LOVE EARL GRAY Seriously, I need to invest in an ice cream freezer. Even if I only use it on rare occasions. Or, all the time when I have it because ice cream is awesome.
