'Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home' on Serious Eats
Don't knock this mad scientist combo until you've tried it—bitter celery, spicy ginger, and boozy raisins come together beautifully in Jeni Britton Bauer's rich ice cream base.
This recipe, adapted from Jeni Britton Bauer's Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home, infuses her signature ice cream base with kernels and the milk of perfectly sweet summer corn. Into the corn-infused base go Britton Bauer's holy trinity of ice cream enhancers—cornstarch, corn syrup, and cream cheese—making sure that the ice cream stays smooth and creamy in the freezer.
Corn might not be up there with chocolate and vanilla in the upper echelon of ice cream flavors, but its subtle sweetness makes for one fantastically summery scoop.
