blueice

A day or two after baking the blueberry pie, I still had about 1/8th of the pie in the fridge. The Kid and Mrs. MM are apparently not too fond of blueberry pie so the question was what to do with the leftovers. I looked into the fridge and freezer and spied a 2/3 full pint of plain vanilla Haagen Daz ice cream. I scooped out the ice cream, added some roughly chopped pie crust and lots of filling and mixed it until blended well. The ice cream turned a light purple and it had big chunks of blueberries and bits of dough. It tasted good just then and there, kind of all soft and melting, but I put the pint back into the freezer to firm up the ice cream a bit. Once fully frozen, it was delicious, but the large frozen blueberries were a little disconcerting to chew on as they got kinda hard. I suppose I should have chopped up the blueberries some more to make it smoother. Nevertheless, it was a good way to use the leftovers. And the color of the ice cream…white with blue/purple streaks…utterly brilliant!

    Hi MM this is of topic but would you know where to buy raw, unsalted almonds? In Santis Greenhills, they sell it in small plastic jars and it is quite expensive (around Php 200.00+ I think). Maybe you know of other stores that sell almonds in a higher quantity but for a better price. Thanks! :)

    Ask your relatives in the US to send you some. Costco sells raw unsalted almonds for about $7. for 2 lbs. Health food stores or candy stores carry them as well for about $5. a lb.

    Joan, you can try Toby’s Nut stalls in major malls, they sometimes have unsalted almonds. There are also almonds in S&R but in larger quantities…
