Friday Saturday! It seems like a while since I’ve been here. Summer was a whirlwind! I guess it’s technically still summer, but school has started where we live, so the carefree part of summer is over. Which means I’ll have more time for cooking and blogging!
This week the Cook the Book Fridays group made Buttermilk Ice Cream. As far as ice creams go, this recipe couldn’t have been easier. Heat up some heavy cream with sugar and corn syrup to dissolve the sugar, then cool thoroughly. Once cool, add buttermilk, then freeze in an ice cream maker (though I hear there are techniques for making ice cream without an ice cream maker).
Buttermilk Ice Cream is refreshing and delicious. The tang from the buttermilk gives the ice cream a flavor that reminds me of cheesecake. I am sure it would pair well with all sorts of things, from fruit to chocolate cake. I served it with fresh peaches and it was delicious!
If you would like to try Buttermilk Ice Cream, you can find the recipe on page 299 of David Lebovitz’s book My Paris Kitchen.
I am glad to be back, and I hope you will be hearing from me more regularly in the months ahead. Have a great weekend!
