I just bought an ice cream maker this summer and have been experimenting with various flavours and creams etc.
Invented this one Thanksgiving weekend.
It was a HUGE hit.
It is very rich so a little goes a long way . You can switch up the diary . I used a bit of all I had LOL
Use a blue cheese you enjoy; the flavor profile of the cheese will come through in the ice cream. A blue d'Auvergne would be mild, slightly spicy and slightly sweet; a Gorgonzola would be bold, intense and complex. A Danish bleu would be the mildest choice; the milder cheeses will need less sugar. Adapted from a recipe at Serious Eats. http://bit.ly/fawLd8
Adapted from a recipe by Pim Té at her blog: http://tinyurl.com/mtoszc This is a really rich, decadent recipe with the nutty flavor of brown butter - no extraneous flavors like vanilla or molasses here.
Inspired by a recipe on this site. Serve as a palate cleanser between courses of a formal meal, or with small glasses of Sauternes as a dessert. (6 hour preparation time includes ripening of the puree, and hardening of the finished sorbet.)
A lovely Italian-inspired summertime treat. Very small scoops would make an excellent palate freshener between dinner courses. A dry Riesling balances the sweet liqueur, but according to your taste you may substitute other fruity wines, ranging from a dry Gewurztraminer to a sweet dessert wine or port. Cooking time is approximate freezing time.
From Elise at Simply Recipes (http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/006165easy_pumpkin_ice_cream.php). Since this has no custard base, it's simpler, lighter and less rich than other ice creams. However, it is also less shelf-stable, and will start to get icy after just 8 hours in the freezer (less if you omit the brandy), so it should be made and eaten the same day.
From David Lebovitz' blog at http://www.davidlebovitz.com/archives/2007/11/the_easiest_cho.html. If you want to experiment, you need to include a similar amount and percentage of alcohol to keep the ice cream from freezing too hard. Most of the sweetness comes from the banana, so choose a nice ripe one.
