Last week on the summer solstice my boys, my nieces and I did a little harvesting in the garden. One item harvested was mint by my niece Zoe. Once I cleaned the mint, I decided to use some of it to make mint syrup. The rest of the mint will be used to make mint extract and some minty drinks.
Since I had my nieces at my house I thought it would be fun to show them and my boys how to make mason jar ice cream incorporating the mint syrup. Below is our mason jar ice cream video.
They had a blast making the ice cream. My boys were pretty excited that I let them eat ice cream before bedtime...they probably will want their cousins to come over all the time since they had this special treat at right before bed.
