Fun With Dessert — Episode 2: Ray Earhart's Potato Ricer Ice Cream Maker


Well, it didn't take long for joeheads to jump on yesterday's Spaghetti Ice Cream Maker and take it to the next level.

    Ray Earhart commented:

    This looks curiously like the potato ricer we just bought. (Which makes incredible mashed potatoes without mashing them). I'm going home to see if the ricer will make spaghetti. Does that sound stupid?

Heck, no, Ray: it sounds inspired, with flecks of genius scattered throughout.

Ray reported last evening on the results.

    Hi Joe,

    Well, this turned out to be a scientific adventure. There's much to learn here, not that I doubt your intellect, it's just outside the normal medical situations you are accustomed to. I think that you aren't able to do much experimentation during work hours. At least I hope so. Maybe I should get back to the subject in hand.

    I stopped by the local SpeedyMart on the way home to check out the ice cream. What a choice (top)! How could I have not chosen this one:


    So.... Here's the ricer:


    And here's the ice cream all ready to go:


    So, with much squeezing and much ado...........


    Pretty much wimped out on me. What do you think, should I have put more ice cream in it? There was more left in the ricer than in the bowl! I can see the possibilities of this but... I forgot to tell you that I also found something else in the SpeedyMart that might work as well:


    You don't think that I actually tried to make Spam spaghetti, do you? God, that's disgusting!

Way to go, Ray! The thought of S*p*a*m in a ricer makes me quiver; and not in a good way. Wonder what Martha would think? Julia would howl...

BTW, they're great for squeezing lemons.

I think you should have put the gadget thingy in the freezer for a while so that it doesn't melt the ice cream so much.

I really didn't know if this was going to fit Joe's sense of humor or not. Glad it did!

So, now I'm an official Joehead? Cool. Do I get any rights and privileges? If I get in trouble at the supermarket again can I blame it all on Joe?
