Sweet Corn Ice Cream

Karen Petree


We had never heard of corn ice cream until we visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. We have since experimented with a variety of different recipes and unanimously decided this one is our keeper.

I too had never heard of corn ice cream. I love the sweetness of corn, so I couldn't wait to try this recipe. I was not disappointed! It's so creamy and sweet. This will be great during the summer when fresh corn is in season. Yum, what a treat!

Note: We used 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract as our flavor of choice. The Test Kitchen
