Andy Kline hosts on Friday, May 17, 2019.
For Foodie Friday we’ll get to know ice cream maker Marc Wheeler. He’ll teach us how ice cream is made, and give us some sweet ideas for the weekend.
Magic Shell Recipe
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons safflower or other neutral oil
Combine in microwave safe dish and heat at 50% power, stirring every minute to whisk. Should take 1-2 minutes, depending on wattage of microwave.
Once chocolate is completely melted, add pinch of salt (kosher preferably) and whisk until smooth.
Drizzle into to ice cream after churning, breaking into chips once hardened. May also be used to coat a dip cone.
Can be stored in the fridge up to one month. To use, simply melt again in microwave at 50% power.
Trailmix will give us an update,
and Juneau Jazz and Classics’ headliner Mark O’Connor will tell us about a life in music.
