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.
