I absolutely love Chocolate icecream. Nothing but rich and creamy chocolate ice cream. Even a piece of nut will be regarded as adultration.

Now that I have mentioned it , I am getting a strong urge to eat some

Which one do you like ?

If I get to choose, I would probably pick Pistachio. Otherwise, Vanilla is fine.

BTW, when I was in France many many years ago, I tried a Pear Sorbet. It was incredible !! I have yet to find it in the states.

cake batter flavor, but if I cannot get to that I like Oreo/cookies and cream, or the general Butter Pecan is good.

Sorbet is easy to make. Get yourself a cheapo ice cream maker and you can make your own in no time flat.

My own recipe for Ginger Sorbet will knock your socks off.

Phish Food from Ben & Jerry - so good. It's too bad there's only a very limited B&J selection over here.

Share please.

My favorite flavor is chocolate chip. I like the cheap kind, with the little flakes of chocolate, not the expensive kind with big chunks of chips.

i'm weird.

Bear's Knock-your-socks-off Ginger Sorbet

1 c sugar
1 c ginger preserves
1/4 c minced candied ginger
4 c ginger ale

Bring sugar, preserves, candied ginger and 1 c of the ginger ale to a simmer in a saucepan. Stir until the sugar and preserves are completely dissolved. Do not bring to a hard boil.

Mix in the rest of the ginger ale. Cool completely in the refrigerator, preferably overnight.

Following the directions of your ice cream maker, freeze the sorbet until a thick slush is achieved. Freeze until firm.

It can freeze up pretty hard, you might want to take it out of the freezer about 20 minutes before serving.

Variations:

If you can't find ginger preserves (Dundee's is a common brand), increase the sugar to 2 cups, but it won't be as ginger-y.

If you really like ginger, substitute ginger beer for the ginger ale. This will make it Bear's Melt-your-boots Ginger Sorbet.

    Starbuck's Java Chip icecream is both tasty and cool for developers.... plus the "onboard chips" give the hardware guys something to enjoy as well.
     
    Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
