My girlfriend’s favorite flavor of ice cream is Salted Caramel from a local creamery here. I’ve really been playing around with the ideas of sweet and salty for an ice cream flavor to see how much more of the sweetness comes out with the salt aspect. I wanted to recreate both the texture and flavor of boutique ice cream with this butterscotch sea salt ice cream.
This one definitely fits the bill. The flavors of butterscotch play perfectly with the saltiness that comes through. Though, I do want to say to make sure to use a flaked sea salt. Using lite salt or kosher salt might give you a different taste, but you can definitely experiment to see what you come up with. Note that the vodka is optional – but it helps the ice cream from freezing too far (and having actual chunks of ice).
