Here’s a quick post to highlight one of our favorite foods: ice cream.
We have a pretty good generic homemade ice cream recipe, and it’s easily adaptable to fit the season (there is no off-season for ice cream) or whatever ingredients you have on hand.
This iteration, a vanilla chai pear ice cream, is a great one for winter, and the combination of fruit and spices will leave you feeling a little fancier than if you were eating a plain chocolate.
Vanilla chai pear ice cream requires a bit more planning because it has to steep, but it’s just as easy to put together as any other flavor.
The basic process is straightforward: gently heat some cream, toss in a peeled and sliced pear and a couple of chai tea bags, and let it steep over very low heat for an hour or so.
Add in some vanilla and sugar, and let it cool.
Pop the slurry into an ice cream maker and let it freeze.
