A few years ago I started making Pumpkin Pie Spice Ice Cream, which is just a vanilla ice cream recipe with Pumpkin Pie Spice mix added. It's delicious, but the name was a mouthful, so I asked around about what to call it.
My friend Moriah suggested "Spice Cream" which is so fucking perfect I can't believe I didn't think of it.
But the name also opened up the possibility in my head of other Spice Creams, and the first that popped into my head was ginger. A proper Ginger Ice Cream; like as would put a proper hurtin' on ya. But I can get fresh ginger at the store, so I'll go that route instead of using the dried spice.
