I already own Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream At Home, and it's not like I make ice cream so often that I need multiple books on the topic. So when I saw Ample Hills Creamery, I immediately dismissed it as unnecessary.Then I went back to take a second look. And a third. By that time I was hooked and I ordered it. I got it last week and have already made Gather Round the Campfire, which is basically s'mores ice cream, and Salted Crack Caramel. Both were amazing. The Gather Round the Campfire is a cream base, into which you roast marshmallows and then scoop the molten stickiness into the cream and process with a blender. Then a graham cracker crumb cookie is made and broken up into the machine while it's churning. Finally, a milk chocolate ribbon is whipped through the churned cream. I used every mixing spoon in the house and had to stop halfway to run a load in the dishwasher, but it was so worth it.-bsb
I've given 5 stars because of the wonderful photographs however, if I had seen this book in a book store I would not have bought. This is without a doubt a book for the American market as most of the ingredients if available here would be expensive. Recipes are certainly different with beer, whiskey and other very strange icecreams eg, bacon. I had bought this book as a gift but it does not fulfill that need. Beautiful book but unfortunately I don't like it.-pepperminta
I found Ample Hills creamery through instagram. I’ve never been to the shop but the photos won me ever. I bought the book and a few weeks later I started making ice cream. Even though some of the ingredients are hard to find where I live, this book is amazing. So many interesting recipes and really delicious! I made a few of the recipes and all were amazing and really easy. I have a cheap old ice cream machine and in need of a new better one, so the churning process isn’t always a success. Some of my favourites (so far) is the ooey gooey butter cake and The Munchies! There is even a waffle cone recipe which makes me wanting a waffle cone maker just to try it!-Elena
