Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream: A Texas First

Round Rock Honey is trying its hand at molecular gastronomy with Bee’s Freeze, the first liquid nitrogen ice cream in Texas. Owner Konrad Bouffard is debuting the treat at the Cedar Park Farmers' Market on Saturday and the Mueller Farmers' Market on Sunday. The all-natural stuff is made with cream from grass-fed cows at Full Quiver Dairy and sweetened solely with honey (no high-fructose corn syrup), without any added binders or preservatives.
But the coolest part? The ice cream is frozen while you watch.
Flavors will rotate based on the season, but the inaugural menu features flavors like honey berry, black cocoa and honey and salted honey caramel. Looks like molecular gastronomy isn’t just for the Uchikos of the world anymore.
