milkmade flavor of the day: Sakura (aka Cherry Blossom Ice Cream)cherry blossom ice cream served over the cherry blossom leavesSpring sprung this weekend in New York and it sure was gorgeous. We were able to pay a trip out to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. After a little hanami - the act of enjoying the beauty of cherry blossom flowers - at the park, we snagged some felled blossoms, took them home, and turned them into ice cream. Of course we did!
See, in Japan the flowers and leaves of the cherry blossom tree are preserved and eaten — either salted and pickled, or used in tea, or wrapped around mochi to make sakuramochi or other candies. Now, we present, Sakura Ice Cream. How does it taste, you ask? It’s smooth, milky, delicious, and oddly enough, tastes a bit like coconut.
