Have you thought about the delights of an old Kzinti favorite? Tuna or salmon might just make you the most popular two leg in your home.

There's this seed pod from se Asia and Mexico that I hear you can's a little pricey but if you scrape the inside of it into the slurry it makes the most delightful ice cream.

The flavor of whatever local fruit is in season. If that particular selection doesn't make for great ice cream, those machines can make a sorbet as well.

Ashtray and Limburger, with hunks of raw chicken liver.

I'll be out of character and say blueberry.

You rarely see a good blueberry ice cream because they tend to lose flavor when frozen.

So, to counter that, use wild boreal blueberries from Trader Joe's as they keep their blueberry flavor when frozen.

- earl (or even better, lady) grey
- mushroom (not even kidding, this is seriously good. I used some random dried mushroom assortment from ocean state)

hmm, now I want to try a couple versions with "teas" I've been enjoying lately, namely soba and also roasted barley. I bet hibiscus+rosehips would also be pretty good.

stuff like green cardamons or saffron pistachio, you can always find at a local S.Asian grocer, but still fun to make yourself.

Pistachio. Or chocolate almond.

I can't find either one of those anymore.
2022-07-20 11:49:49 PM  
Chocolate with cacao nibs and ancho chili.  I make that one and it's a big hit.
Mango is a good idea too.
2022-07-21 12:08:22 AM  
I'm surprised that dulce de leche is hard to find, but guess it's a regional thing. it's very common in San Diego.
Favorite home made flavors from my youth were chocolate+cinnamon and graham cracker.  If you like graham cracker in desserts like s'mores or cheesecake, it's worth a try.
Real Southeast Asian style coconut is amazing too, and I don't generally like coconut otherwise.

Well crap.  Fark just ate my beautifully-crafted, well-illustrated post.  Poo!!

casey17: Pistachio. Or chocolate almond.

I can't find either one of those anymore.

Ben and Jerry's Pistachio Pistachio is wonderful.  Look for that.  Haagen-Dazs also makes a pistachio.  You can't find either?

I know it's not made with chocolate ice cream, but have you tried Haagen-Dazs' Vanilla Swiss Almond?  It's my go-to favorite.

I eat ice cream by the pint.  The fact that the lids are replaceable is utterly pointless in my hands.

My flavor suggestion is dark roast coffee.  Making ice cream with coffee brings out the subtleties of the bean variety.

Pick your favorite dark roast (if you don't have one, you can find Starbucks Sumatra in most groceries), brew some of that extra strong, and use that as a flavoring.

Good coffee ice cream is heavenly.

Pumpkin Pie

Yeah, "pumpkin spice" is overdone now, but it was always a big hit with the family years ago

Recipe came with the Cuisinart ice cream maker...don't have it anymore because of a healthier diet, but it can probably be found online somewhere
2022-07-21 5:20:10 AM  
Reminds me I haven't gone out for real ice cream in ages.

Not sure if it's seasonal or not, but there was this one place that made good pancake flavored icecream. Not sure if it was cookie dough or pancake dough and maple syrup, but it was damn good. Might have had cinnamon and syrup.

Oh, do crepe. Banana, cinnamon, chicolate and maple.

2022-07-21 5:55:17 AM  
I second pumpkin spice. Or just straight cinnamon, that's also yummy. Also recommend letting the ice cream base sit in the fridge for half a day or so to let it absorb the spices, and then possibly straining it before churning depending on how "gritty" the spices make it.  (I've had fun trying different types of cinnamon, there's quite a bit of variety there.)

I'm a big fan of lemon curd ice cream. It's getting a little easier to find actual lemon flavored ice cream in stores but usually it's sorbet and I much prefer ice cream (well frozen custard really).

The Humphrey Slocombe ice cream book has all kinds of fun and wacky flavors. Their prosciutto recipe sounds bizarre but the end result is delicious.

David Lebovitz's stuff is also great.

Oh! And real vanilla! With a real vanilla pod! It's an entirely different thing than what most people think of as "vanilla".

Orange pineapple is a local favorite around my neck of the woods. If you want something different try raspberry and chocolate.

Bought an ice cream maker a little over a year ago, and have been making ice cream almost every weekend since.  Experiment.  Look at whatever flavor combinations you like in sweets, baked goods, etc., and adapt it to ice cream.  My current batch is lemon with chunks of lemon blueberry ricotta cake churned into it.  My previous was dark chocolate with pecans, chocolate biscotti, and spiced rum (Cap'n Morgan).  Others over the past year?

Caramel apple -- Dice and cook a couple apples until they're really, really soft, adding cinnamon and whatever other spices you like.  Churn the cooked (and thoroughly cooled) apples into the ice cream base.  After an hour-ish in the freezer, pour some caramel on top and swirl it into the ice cream with chopsticks.

Chocolate orange -- zest a few oranges and add it to your chocolate ice cream base.

Moose tracks-ish -- dark chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla, chopped up dark chocolate peanut butter cups, chocolate-covered covered peanut butter Oreos (from Trader Joe's).

I used to make a chocolate shake and add Kahlua, seems like that would go with your chili cinnamon chocolate too.

also once, kind of as a joke, tried a Guinness float and it was surprisingly good. I could see that working somehow too.

Red bean paste or green tea. Something you can find in good Asian grocery stores, but unlikely to be at a typical ice cream place.

Don't chop them fine, two whacks is fine.

Bourbon-pecan chocolate chip: infuse pecans, flavor custard with bourbon and vanilla (optional), mix in chocolate chips and toasted pecans

Mojito: infuse lime zest and mint, flavor custard with rum.

Following this recipe:

Fun fact: the first option is part of the inspiration behind my user name

This is less about the flavor of your end product and more about the flavor of the base you build everything on, but I've had a lot of good luck with using creme fraiche in my ice cream instead of regular cream.
