Forget about those Red Roses and try Red Beans instead this Valentine’s Day. This heart shaped mold is made with red bean ice cream and trimmed with sweetened condensed milk. Rather than go for the obvious red cherry flavor, I wanted to try something more exotic. Red beans (also known as Azuki) are used in many Asian confections and when made into ice cream produce a sweet and unique favor. This mold, with its quilted texture and ribboned edges, reminds me of one of those cutesy, lace-trimmed, plush hearts you’d get from your junior high sweetheart (or your parents) for Valentine’s. Happy Valentine’s Day!
