Mar 12, 2009: Oyster Ice Cream

Oyster World

We've heard rumors and murmurings about oyster ice cream for several years. Apparently it's big in Japan, and was popular with Dolley Madison (wife of President James). But we tip our hats to Lorraine Eaton, a reporter with The Virginian-Pilot, for actually making the stuff. Lorraine made an oyster soup out of cream, oyster liquor, ham, flour, and onions, and then chilled it overnight and put it in an ice cream maker. She reports that it looked like coffee ice cream, but she wasn't brave enough to taste it herself. Instead she fed it to her coworkers, who gave it mixed results. Read Lorraine's story and get the recipe here.
