Late in the summer I make fresh mint ice cream. The flavor of the mint cooked in custard is so intense, it tastes salty to me. Charleston’s master confectioner, Mark Gray, tells me the high sodium content of fresh mint accounts for that. I balance out the intensity of the mint by adding roughly cut bits of bittersweet chocolate to the ice cream.
