- buddha's hand
- 1 3/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
zest buddha's hand.
(i just cut off the zest in large chunks, but you could use a zester, i suppose.)
mix water, sugar, and zest in a pot.
simmer 10 minutes.
let steep for an hour or so.
(but don't leave it in too long.
i think i accidentally did,
and now my ice cream is not as awesome as it could be.
a little too zesty,
but in a bad way.)
(my guess is you could add heavy cream too--
i didn't have any on hand,
so i didn't.
but i bet it would make it creamier.
and who doesn't want creamier ice cream?)
throw it in the ice cream maker.
and enjoy the idea of eating a frozen, creamy buddha's hand.
