Eskimo Ice cream

This is Eskimo Ice Cream.

I had heard about Eskimo ice cream before coming up here but could not really believe that people ate it. I guess now that spring is here we can all celebrate with some!

Eskimo Ice Cream is made first with crisco. Yes all that white stuff in the cup....pure crisco. Then mix in some white fish, some blue berries (from the tundra up here), and some sugar and eat up!

The taste is, well, kinda fishy. The texture is like eating a spoonful of crisco. It was not too bad but Jeremy and Isa could not stomach more then one spoonful. It is just the thought of eating an entire cube of grease that makes you cringe!



Isa thinks that she will stick with good old milk and sugar ice cream.

I'm with her, too. I do like Ice Cream but Crisco I'm not so sure about. But, I haven't tried it, so I guess I really can't knock it.
