Honey'd Fig and Goat Cheese Ice Cream
The perfect summer ice cream has arrived, with flavors as beautiful as they are sophisticated. We're lining up to buy ice cream makers just to try this one out.
Honey and I, we go way back. One of my favorite treats as a child was a warm mug of milk and honey, usually enjoyed just before bed time. Who am I kidding, it's still one of my favorite things! For a sip of nostalgia, I need look no further than a glass of milk and honey. Those very same flavors shine bright and clear in this dessert - sweet honey combined with melt-in-your-mouth ice cream... on a hot day, it doesn't get much better than this.
If you're skeptical about goat cheese, fear not. The flavors here are incredibly light. I love the mild tanginess that goat cheese can lend to a dessert, but often times I find it overpowering - I was careful to keep it mild, just enough to add a dimension to the taste of this ice cream. If you aren't used to using goat cheese, or even if you aren't a fan, I strongly recommend trying this. It's subtle, and it's sublime.
