Here it is, a video demonstration of Ernie’s world famous Gingerbread with Beer, or Gingerbeerbread. Ernie slaved away for minutes to bring you this dish! If you ever wanted to make your own Homemade Ice-cream Sandwiches, this should give you all the info you need. Most of this video is in the making of the actual gingerbread, since most people can figure out how to cut bread and put ice-cream between two slices.
The recipes can be found on the original entry, What’s On The Menu. That is where you will find the actual Gingerbread Recipe with Beer, as well as a Rum Sauce Recipe.
One step that isn’t in the video, but will help a lot, is to chill the bread thoroughly in the fridge or freezer before attempting to slice it. Gingerbread can be pretty crumbly when warm, and you can end up with a lot of crumbs real fast. Another thing Ernie mentioned that he likes to do, is to use multigrain or whole wheat flour, and this gives a little more firmness to the bread as well.
If you are making your own beer gift baskets from scratch, and you plan on chilling the beer for immediate drinking, these ice cream sandwiches would make an excellent gourmet addition to your gift.
And now a word on Tiger Torches. These handy items were used in the Forest of Ubangme to burn out tiger dens, and the best ones still come from there. Here in Alberta, they have become a common oilfield tool used widely for ‘shrinking sleeves’, heating metal, thawing frozen things in the winter, and cooking. You can heat a can of soup, roast hot dogs, you name it. Caution must be used around flammable objects when using one of these units! The temperature can be hard to regulate, so be careful. Warning: do not cook indoors with tiger torches! We will not be held responsible if you die in a freak cooking accident, or if attacked by a tiger outside his den. Ernie uses the tiger torch for several applications at the Redneck Bar and Grill.
