Last night in an effort to use up the last of the pears we remade the Italian Pear Cake. This time we added cinnamon and chocolate chips - a brilliant addition if I do say so myself.
With last week's peach ice cream fresh on our minds we thought we'd try pear ice cream with the cake. D used the same recipe but substituted pears.
Have you ever had pear ice cream? It was DELICIOUS!
I don't think he measured anything but the basic recipe is something like this:
1 cup cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup fruit (I think he used more pear than this)
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
Mix the ingredients with a blender and then pour into the frozen ice cream maker, ours is similar to this but smaller. Churn until frozen.
The ice cream was surprisingly pear flavored.
It was excellent. We had to eat the ice cream quickly so I don't have a photo of that. But trust me, it was good.
I have some pears set aside in the fridge for another batch!
