National Ice Cream Month~Bacon Recipe

Well, July is National Grilling, Ice Cream, Hot Dogs, AND Baked Beans month. So why not kinda combine all those and get a flavor like..........BACON!!!

This 4th of July I decided to make Bacon Ice Cream. I like those fun and different ice cream flavors, just ask my friends Kelsey & Alicia that traveled in Europe with me. 

The out come: most of the group thought it sounded weird, but were pleasantly surprised. Its that great Sweet N' Salty combo

Here is the recipe from Pork Be Inspired

Bacon Ice Cream

2 cups half & half
2 cups milk
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar, light, packed

Cooking Directions
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine bacon, half and half, milk, corn syrup, and sugar and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce to maintain a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside to steep until a deep bacon flavor develops, 10 to 20 minutes. Strain through a medium-mesh strainer and set aside to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.
Process according to your ice cream manufacturer’s instructions.
Yield: About 5 cups (serving size 1/2 cup)
