So I made chocolate ice cream by blending 5 bananas and adding 3 spoons of Nutella. The taste is fine but when I left it in freezer for a night it got so hard I couldn't eveb break it. After that I left it in fridhe for a couple hours and it got liquid back again. Any solution or tips for this?
This is a classic dish from the Croatian region of Istria. Inspired by Marco Polo Some biographers claim that Marco Polo was born in the town of Korcula on the island Korcula, which was then part of the Venetian Republic.

Today, on the News, I see it's National Mustard Day, and they're featuring mustard ice cream topped with crushed pretzles. Hmmm. The Gilroy Garlic Festival has garlic ice cream...
Mustard ice-cream might sound a bit strange but well… someone had to do it. Dijon, which is after all quite a sweet mustard, is intended to add a tang to the ice-cream which compliments the anise tarragon flavour. The basic ice cream recipe is a kulfi (an Indian ice-cream) and the great thing...
