Peppermint Crisp Ice-Cream
February 1, 2013 in Uncategorized
I spent Christmas in Australia, Rockhampton – Queensland to be exact.
Until now I thought Hell was a really hot place place deep under the earth, where evil people spend eternity burning and gnashing their teeth.
Rockhampton has a special tourist attraction for those wishing to experience the heat of hell, without being surrounded by pesky evil people and those with irritating teeth gnashing issues. It also has the added advantage of being only 20 kms from the sea and you don’t have to go far (usually at least 3 rooms in your home) to find an air conditioner!
Like I said earlier this week I got to eat some amazing food, even the crocodile ribs. But there are things in Australia which you just have to live without (unless you can get to the South African shop, which seems an institution any place more than 2 South Africans have emigrated to.) One such treat is Peppermint Crisp. How sad is that? A whole nation of people never knowing the delight of drinking milk through a Peppermint Crisp, no church bazaar with Auntie Sarie’s Peppermint Crisp tart? All I can say is “Ag Shampies”.
This last week in Cape Town has been pretty close to Rockhampton hell. But lucky for us we have Peppermint Crisp and an ice cream maker. So I pulled out all the cheating tricks I could find and made a really good ice cream, that I think even an Australian might like!
