We gathered our ingredients, cut a bunch of fresh mint from our mint garden and headed to the stove. We measured, poured, simmered and I turned away from the stove for a moment - never a good idea - and the pot boiled over making a huge mess all over the top of my recently cleaned stove.
We continued on, straining the mint and putting the mixture in the fridge to cool. Our impatience got the best of us and we transferred the mixture to the ice-cream maker before it was cool enough, so, it would form ice-cream. Just a slushy, icy mix.I had to pour it back out, the the mix some more, refreeze the ice cream bowl and try again.
