Oregano. A fun and useful herb to have in the garden - but sometime you might feel like you have too much of a good thing and wonder what else you can make with this tasty herb.

Why not try something a little outside the box? Why not try a Greek ice cream flavor to take a little heat out of air this summer?

Oregano flavored ice cream has a distinct, classy flavor. It won't satisfy a sweet tooth or be the favorite of a picky eater, but for those who love to try new things and give there tastebuds a whirl - this might be something you want to give a try.

We had varying reactions to this ice cream flavor in our house. Our pre-schooler told me - "Mommy, I don't really like this ice cream. Can you please make me an ice cream I like?"

Now we've tried tons of different ice cream flavors in our home - bacon, basil...and she's liked them all. This was the first ice cream flavor she's met that she didn't like.

My toddler and I didn't mind this flavor. It was pretty good.

Serving Tip: Garnish ice cream with fresh oregano and honey (the darker the honey the better - and of course, for an authentic Greek flavor - Greek honey is best)!

Serving this ice cream with honey really "makes" this flavor.
