Two truly great things to love about Ohio are summer sweet corn and Jeni's Ice Cream. When Jeni paired the two in her cookbook Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home I knew the recipe would be a winner, and it is. You definitely taste the corn, the sugary sweet best parts of it in my opinion! If you haven't had a chance to make it to a Jeni's location, try out this recipe and see how great her ice cream is. 

Makes 3-4 cups

Step 1: Gather ingredients

You'll need:

an ice cream maker

1 ear sweet corn, husked
2 cups whole milk
1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 ounces (3 Tbsp.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup

Here in Korea you can find corn cob ice cream with bits of corn in a "ear" shaped cone, but they put corn on everything including pizza.
This sounds wonderful. Love the idea of topping it with the freeze dried corn. :D
