  1. Sounds interesting. By zukes you mean the squash type? I never had zucchini ice cream before. Have fun.:)

    1. Yeppers Gloria :-) Summer squash, crooknecks, marrow, courgette, zucchini or simply, zukes.

      I tested a small batch the other day and it worked nicely with the fruit.

      Today I make a BIG BATCH.

  4. I love that Gad Zukes. To me seems an odd thing for ice cream.

    1. Worked well, the creamy white flesh blended nicely without compromising taste or texture.

      Asparagus soup is on the stove-top, as I type.

  10. What kind of salad dressing are you going to use for the ice cream's topping?

  11. I like zucchini--cooked. Not sure how I could handle it in ice cream. Cream & zucchini? Yeah, I'd pass. I'm assuming you do use cream to call it ice cream.

    1. Hey Stacy - I cheat, as all of my ice creams and frozen yums are dairy-free.

  12. Enjoy the Zuke-ices. Anything that uses up zukes must be a good thing. I smile when I find a recipe for zukes in the Summer and it says "one small zuke" and I think, no I want a recipe that uses ten zukes, at least.

    1. Ten at least? You really do love them. Cool beaners. What's your favorite way to eat them?

      Delete
    2. Reason I want a recipe for ten is that they grow like crazy here once they start.
      I freeze them as "Courgette Squudge" and release them to include in soups, tomato sauces and anything else they want to be in over the winter.

    3. They grow like mad here, too. People give them away. Though I won't eat the ones from pesticide gardens. Yuck, they're so smelly and that taste, YUCK!

      But a good heirloom/organic one. Now we're talking.

      Delete
    4. You're right, pesticide soup is not a good idea.
      All our vegetables are organic, so you would be OK with ours.
