craving maple

A bit ago I had this intense craving for maple flavor. It was cold outside and I wanted something that tasted rich and smooth and creamy. And I wasn't about to down a bottle of maple syrup. Not the biggest fan of that stuff. 
Rewind back to three years ago when I purchased a brand new ice cream maker for my sister. Oh you mean the one that she never took out of the box? Yah, that one. I figured that I at least deserved to get my money's worth out of it.
I know I said it was freezing outside, but haven't you ever had your heart set on ice cream despite the weather telling you otherwise?


Inspired by this recipe. All you need is...
  • 2/3 cup Grade B maple syrup
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
Is it bad that I desperately wanted to sprinkle bacon on top of it?

Now that I've read this, I feel obligated to make it for my boyfriend. And sprinkle it with bacon.

i figured i would just keep doing posts like this until somebody figured it out! I mean, that's kind of what Bridge did with all her pre-announcement posts about Mickie D's drive-in for breakfast...
