One of the most unusual (and favorites) is Lavender Gin from Amy's in Austin, TX.

I am suggesting you all try my walnut oil and white pepper ice cream. It won't disappoint if you use a high quality walnut oil (not the typical French grocery store brand). Sounds strange but it's very delicious. My strangest so far: Pecorino gelato in Florence-it was killer! Although I just had avocado and lime at Sweet Peaks in Missoula, MT. Yum yum. And, I just experimented with making a preserved lemon ice cream. It is positively divine.

almost all sound great. The weirdest ice cream I ever had was at a small artisinal shop in Cordoba, Spain in 1987 -- blue cheese and walnuts.

If you are looking for "wacky" try my White Pepper and Walnut Oil Ice Cream. It hasn't received many hits on this Food 52 but it sure is deliciously wacky! Believe me, try it!!
