I have loved getting ideas for meals from my Instagram peeps...the best being dessert, or course. ;) So I was glad when Heather (@riverandbridge) shared that she made a roasted strawberry buttermilk ice cream. My mouth started watering at the thought, and she was so sweet to give me her recipe! With it being peach season I couldn't help think of how tasty the combination of peaches + strawberries would be. :) I whipped it up that night, enjoyed it the next day, and it's now a favorite ice cream over here! The buttermilk adds a perfect tang that lightened up the rich cream, I just may add it to all my homemade ice creams from now on.
ROASTED PEACH AND STRAWBERRY BUTTERMILK ICE CREAM
1 cup sugar
2 eggs (pasteurized)
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup buttermilk
Dice up peaches and quarter strawberries, toss with 1/4 cup sugar. Spread the fruit on a lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. The fruit will caramelize a bit and get wonderfully gooey. While the fruit is cooling, blend the eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, whipping cream, and buttermilk just until sugar dissolves (I used a hand mixer). Pour the cream mixture into the ice cream maker, and while that's freezing, mix the cooled fruit into a food processor (or a blender) to make a chunky sauce. After the icecream thickens, add the fruit sauce and turn the ice cream maker on a while longer. Store in a freezer proof container until ready to eat. Serve and enjoy!
