This is a flavor for the ages, especially for all you 'hounds out there who crave salty/sweet combos the way I do.
Go to to www.epicurious.com and search for "Grandpa Roy's caramel ice cream."
I followed the instructions closely, except I used 2 cups of half in half instead of 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream.
SO described it best when he said it tasted like frozen creme brulee: creamy, rich, and slightly burnt.
The best part for me is that even after a night in the freezer, the ice cream is soft enough to scoop with a plastic spoon! This makes it the perfect make-ahead dessert that doesn't require thaw time in the fridge, whereas other ice creams tend to become rock hard overnight and need to be set out during dinner if guests want to have dessert right away.
As a salted caramel fanatic, I actually had to try hard to refrain from licking the drippings off my countertop.
