Real Girl's Kitchen: Rosemary Olive Oil & Sea Salt Ice Cream


No matter how they happen, break-ups aren’t fun. They monopolize most of your thoughts, make you want to go to bed at 8pm and eat your weight in ice cream. Sounds cliche, but I didn’t have an appetite for almost two weeks and once I finally felt like eating, all I wanted was ice cream. Then my mom said the magic words: ice cream, salt and olive oil. Three of my favorite things, all together in this magical little mason jar.

To add a little something special, I infused the olive oil with some fresh rosemary from my backyard. It’s easy – pour about a cup of olive oil in to a sauce pan and warm on low heat for about 15 minutes. Strain the old leaves out, transfer to a mason jar, let cool. Add some fresh sprigs. Voila!


What you need:

Vanilla bean ice cream

A couple sprigs of fresh rosemary

Olive oil

A good quality sea salt


Scoop your ice cream, drizzle with your olive oil, sprinkle with your salt.

Thanks, Mom.
