Hey all! I found this article on wine ice cream and it sounds like a perfect treat for the summer..especially for dinner parties. Thoughts?

    Are you thinking of buying or making wine ice cream?

    I've tasted and bought a number of wine gelatos and ice creams. Some are awful and cloying and some delicious.

    The recipe in the link looks good. I would think though for a wine ice cream you need to have a decent wine ... nothing rare with lots of nuaces which would get lost. However, you don't want to start with Franzia or Two Buck Chuck either.

      This could be delicious or not so delicious....the idea of making red wine into a dairy concoction doesn't quite sit right with me. But I'd have to try it!

        If you try it and don't like it, I'd try again. As I mentioned before I've had both good and bad versions ... even in the same ice cream or gelato shop. Some work and some don't.
