"This is a Filipino ice cream. This ice cream is not just your plain mais (sweet corn) ice cream, it has bits of cheddar cheese in it hence the name Mais con Queso (Sweet Corn with Cheese). It is common in Thailand but they use coconut milk instead of dair"

And then, of course I had to play with garnishes.
I did both, but tonight we'll just use one - it was a little overkill
8 oz bacon, rendered in oven until very crispy
½ lb. butter
½ lb. dark brown sugar
2 cups maple syrup
2 cups heavy cream
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
In a 3-qt. saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until it becomes light brown. Whisk the brown sugar, maple syrup and heavy cream into the butter and bring to a boil. Add the bacon and vanilla extract.
Using an immersion blender, mix sauce until bacon is in small pieces. Strain the sauce.
Fry a pound of bacon until crisp. Drain and cool. In a clean skillet, melt one cup sugar and three tablespoons honey in two tablespoons water; cook on medium-high until bubbles subside and syrup turns light amber.
Turn heat to very low and add bacon, turning strips with tongs. Place strips on oiled baking sheet or parchment paper until cool, then serve it.

Never explain your actions. Your enemies do not believe it and your friends do not need it.
