A few weeks back we had a request for a flavor that featured graham crackers. We love and encourage flavor requests, and were happy to run with that idea and pair it with our annual outpouring of love for strawberries. As we often do during the few weeks strawberries are available, we can’t help ourselves from creating at least a few flavors with them. Maybe it’s pure selfishness on our part, but we can’t get enough of them.
For the graham cracker, we had to do a little processing first to make sure it holds up in the ice cream. So we combine with some butter, salt and mayyybe a little sugar and puree in a food processor until a new buttery dough forms.
The mix is then spread out on a sheet pan and baked off in the oven until nice and crunchy, then broken up in preparation to go into the ice cream.
The strawberries are cooked down and make into a jam, and then added straight into the ice cream before the churn.
The end result is a fresh strawberry ice cream full of buttery, crunchy chunks of graham cracker. For sale soon, at our kitchen.
