Cardamom has a citrus flavor that lends itself perfectly to the lemons and bananas in this ice cream recipe. If you've never tasted cardamom before I urge you to abandon any reservations and give this a try. While cardamom is fairly exotic it's flavor doesn't have a single note of anything unusual. You'll see.
I don't know how I've gone this long without sharing a single hot sauce recipe. So I guess I should show you a recipe for a tomato and Fresno pepper based concoction. It's the kind of sauce that you can really lay onto your food so it won't last long which is why I've given you a recipe that will make about three bottles. It's a little tart and quite a bit spicier than Tabasco sauce. There is enough tomato in it to sweeten it and thicken it up but not enough to make it taste like it belongs on pasta.
