My Minnesota hosts had two teenage daughters who wanted to make something easy and fun, featuring local ingredients, that would impress their friends. They were thrilled when I whipped up this no-churn ice cream.
Make yourself a totally local farmers market meal by grabbing some locally made brats/sausages, local beer (or bone broth), and a handful of common veggies. The whole plate of comfort food meal comes together in half an hour.
The next time you need an exotic cake that would make HR Geiger’s eyeballs pop, pick up a jar of hibiscus flowers preserved in syrup! The look and flavor are deliciously otherworldly!
