Smokin' Ice Cream

MY GRANDCHILDREN and I together made a freezer of ice cream one day, and when it was frozen, I let them lick the paddle.

After one taste, my granddaughter said, "Granny, this is terrible!" She was right—it tasted burned.

So I discarded the entire batch and started a new one. When I reached for the vanilla, I realized I had inadvertently added Liquid Smoke instead of vanilla to the first batch. My grandkids still ask me about making Liquid Smoke ice cream! —Nita Sappington, Mont Belvieu, Texas
