Pistachio Ice Cream, *Claret Sauce

In 1914 April 28 was a Tuesday.

We saw a savory Claret Sauce served with liver on April 14 and now we have a sweet one to top ice cream.

The Pistachio Ice Cream is a little surprising — there is not a single pistachio in it! It’s just vanilla ice cream with the addition of almond extract and leaf green food coloring. There’s a Pistachio Ice Cream with Peaches coming up in May, which I thought about linking to instead, but there’s no mention of peaches here. That one is made with junket tablets (rennet), instead of a custard, but it also contains no actual nuts, just the same extracts and green food coloring.
