Cinammon and apple ice cream?
- lestblight Mar 16, 2011 11:19 AM
Would like to try a cinammon custard ice cream with some cooked in apples swirled in.
Would make a normal cinammon ice cream and then grab some apples.. and cook them down with some water and sugar.. Puree this .. I could possibly reduce it and make it a little syrupy.. or leave as is.
And then make my ice cream- and swirl in the apple mixture at the end.
I defnitely want a swirl effect - so yer searching for the apple when served. like a little treat.
What would you do ?
Would like to give it a shot this weekend with your help.
sounds like you've already got the perfect plan...the only other thing you might consider is spiking it with a bit of Calvados ;)
what variety of apple are you planning to use?
I'd use a small amt. of liquid to cook down the apples; preferably apple juice or apple cider instead of water. Also the addition of some vanilla bean and salt to add some add'l flavor notes. Peels off the apple and just about any apple would work. Def. agree with the cinnamon and nutmeg but I also like the idea of adding a splash of maple syrup.
