Mini Ice Cream Maker by Zoku, Hoboken, NJ You freeze this bowl for 12 hours and then add the mixed ingredients in the bowl to make ice cream. You put the ingredients in the bowl then scrap along the side with the included spoon to make ice cream. It takes some time to make a whole bowl, but it's a fun process.
Sel Gris Caramel Sauce by CC Made, Berkeley, CA I have had this before and it made a great ice cream Sunday. It is made with sugar, cream and sea salt.
Peanut Frittle by New Fangled Confections, Indianapolis, Indiana This is like peanut brittle but much easier to chew. Peanut Brittle can practically break your teeth depending on the brand. This had a crunch but was a bit sticky too. I crushed these with the caramel sauce on my ice cream.
Madécasse Pure Bourbon Vanilla , Brooklyn, NY You can use this to make real vanilla ice cream. My best friend use to make me vanilla, but she moved, so I haven't had any recently. This jar will last a good long time.
The Jam Stand Strawberry Spread, Brooklyn, NY This was my favorite ingredient in the box, in fact, is more than half way gone. This strawberry spread is like puree'd strawberries. It was fantastic on my homemade biscuits, and we also made strawberry ice cream with it.
I made the strawberry ice cream and it turned out well. It does take a bit of time to make a bowl full, which can make for impatient children. I had never made ice cream at home before, so I was surprised it was so easy.
Final Thought: This was one of my favorite Hampton's Lane boxes so far! As soon as I saw the recipes, I took my kids to the store and got the ingredients. The strawberry ice cream was amazing and I can't wait to try the lemon sorbet. To try Hampton's Lane, use this link with the code SUBBOXMOM10 and you will save $10.00 on you 1st box.
