    I genuinely had never heard of Old Bay before this.

    Oh, and did you find inspiration for your Old Bay Hushpuppy ice cream from milk n’ cornbread or mangonadas? Because my first thought was “spice in ice cream? Sounds like chamoy and Tajin on mango and tamarind ice cream, 💯 approval 😁 (if you don’t know, go to an heladería). When you brought up “cornbread but cold,” my brain went to my southern fam pouring milk on cornbread in a bowl and eating it like cereal. Tastes delish

    While I enjoy your videos, it makes me sad that all of them include eggs. I get why people add egg, but hey, maybe one without? I'm not vegan, thankfully, but severely allergic, so wouldn't be any fun at your ice cream parties.

    Ok, finally had time to watch this. First off: Brian I love you but dear god put a cloth towel under your eggs to keep them from rolling! Were you raised in a barn?! 😂 Next, make sure to sanitize your floor thoroughly of raw egg before eating cherries off of it. Also, not everyone is old enough to rent a car lol. But even so, yes, rent a car/dirigible/pushcart/unicycle and go to Baltimore, the greatest city on earth (says the person who isn’t from MD but had one aunt live there) and put Old Bay on everything (yes everything! 🎵) With that said, I will be trying every single gosh-darn recipe. As soon as I find all the parts to the ice cream maker...

    Weird ice cream party does sound like a great party tbh. Also i like how Old Bay seasoning is to Maryland as green chili is to New Mexico and avocado is to California.

    this has a beautiful thriving vibe to it, lovely to see! As I’m British I understood the words “old bay hush puppy” in a literal sense but had no idea what they meant all together in this context and I had to do some research 😂

    Wait until he hears about the gelato shop in Vancouver that has 218 flavours, including a rotation of weird ones, I believe for a while they had peanut butter curry flavoured.

    I would jam the cherries. Quarter or dice, put in enough sugar and addtl water if you want, but you'll need to boil it off, then you have a sort of cherries in syrup. Also, old bay AND peanut butter ? I would make it

    what i learned from this: i need an ice cream maker. there are so many fun things i could make and try. imagine cooking some diced apples with cinnamon and nutmeg in the oven for a while, get some graham crackers and crumble those up. toss them into the mix of sweet cream. holy hell that'd be good ice cream.

    Hell yeah Charmery! Also I made Old Bay chocolates once that people (in Maryland) seemed to like--just double boil dark chocolate chips and add Old Bay until you can just barely taste it in the melted chocolate, 'cause Old Bay is definitely at its most flavorful at room temperature.
