Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

We’re taking the classic chocolate mint ice cream up a notch by using the chocolate mint grown here on the farm and letting it soak in Down East Vodka (it’s nice to have neighbors that know how to make a good vodka!) for a robust homemade mint extract that brings the yum to this dish. Like any fine wine, or expensive whiskey, the taste of the extract improves the longer it ages. We let it steep for 3 months.

Fresh heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, homemade mint extract, and chopped chocolate chips makes this one of the best mint ice creams we have ever tasted.
