The Verdict: It tastes like toothpaste.
There, I said it.
I even had a few “royal” taste testers and they all came to the same conclusion: toothpaste!
After all that hard work and 2 days of prepping and churning, the mint was so powerful that I was able to brush my teeth with it this morning! (and that’s what I did, don’t judge.)
The Husband even remarked “you can always count on me for honest feedback, and this one was gross.” Gee thanks. Did you have to say it like that? (though between you and me, I agree!)
I think that about sums up this experience.
Moral of the story: you win some, you lose some.
Here is where you all come in: I need help thinking of new recipes so that I can rectify this failed experiment. I’m thinking that next time I’ll use mint oil or extract, but feel free to post your comments, concerns and feedback – I’ll read and appreciate them all!
In the meantime, fear not… Dulce de Leche is on it’s way!
