Before we get to today’s unusual “Would You Eat It?” ice cream flavor, we’d first like to welcome all of the new readers who have found their way onto the Ice Cream Journal since the Ultimate Flavor Tournament started two days ago. Welcome! Speaking of the Ultimate Flavor Tournament, a few of the races are very close (“too close to call” as they say during election coverage), which should make for an exciting weekend as the first round of voting wraps up.
Today’s strange ice cream flavor (above) was made by our fellow ice cream bloggers Sean and Kieran Murphy, who write about their ice cream shop on the blog, Ice Cream Ireland. It’s called Blue Cheese and Caramelized Shallot Ice Cream and it’s made with, you guessed it, blue cheese and caramelized shallots.
Of course, blue cheese is one of those love-it-or-hate-it cheeses and shallots are a type of onion which, for this flavor, are sauteed until they become caramelized. Both ingredients might be good on a burger, but in ice cream, we’re not so sure. Either way, it begs the question: Would you eat it?
