"We could always buy some sea-salt ice cream." - Ansem the Wise
After tasting sea-salt ice cream at Tokyo DisneySea, video game director Tetsuya Nomura added the dish to Kingdom Hearts II. Since then, it's become a recurring treat in the series that symbolizes friendship and teamwork.
The fantasy version is blue, but it's usually the color of cream in the real world. You can find it in Hakata, Japan, which is famous for their local sea salt. Dingle, Ireland is another place that's known for their sea-salt ice cream.
The recipe here is the easiest way to make sea-salt ice cream with common ingredients you probably have at home. I typically use about half a teaspoon of freshly ground sea salt and drizzle mine with honey. Fancier versions will use raw eggs and/or real vanilla beans to make more of a gourmet frozen custard.
