Spiced Apple Ice Cream

It’s that time of year again… the sweater’s come out, the leaves start to change, we break out the hot chocolate and go apple picking. I love fall. It has become, I think, my favorite season the last few years. I love that it’s cold enough that you have to wear a sweater but not a huge jacket, I love the smells, the colors changing and the start of the holiday season. It reminds me what I have to be thankful for and there sure are a lot.

L went apple picking with her class the other day and aside from having an amazing day we had a ton of apples when we got home. My newest kick is making Ice cream
and the apples were just calling to be turned into something delectable.

Ingredients :
1 cup of apples
1 cup of whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 sugar
1 tbls vanilla extract
cloves/cinnamon to taste
Lemon juice
pinch of salt

First I took the apples and squirted in some lemon juice (1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon), then include the cloves and cinnamon. I like my apples heavier on the cloves so just do it to taste. You need to cook the apples down a bit but only for 3-5 minutes. You want them to just turn soft so its not too hard to bite into them when eating the ice cream.
Set your apples aside to cool

Then mix together your milk, sugar and salt. Use a hand mixture to combine until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream, vanilla and another few shakes of your cloves (or cinnamon depending on which you like better.)

Combine your apples into your ice cream mixture and then refrigerate for 1-2 hours or overnight. Once chilled place in your ice cream maker for 20 minutes and then freeze for at least 4 hours. It will be really hard to not try it but its worth waiting!

      • definately will do. I want to make some for my dessert buffet for Mina’s birthday party on Sat. but we’ll see how much time I have. There are always so many things I want to do and never enough time to get them done.

      • I know what you mean. I can’t help going all out every year, but I always end up running around like a crazy person trying to get everything put together at the last moment. It always turns out amazing even though it isn’t 100% how I imagined it.
