local decadence

July 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Part of this project is about going local and knowing what good stuff there is around in Boulder. The great thing about making ice cream is that you can really tap into the wonderful Summer produce. In this case I tapped into some Colorado cherries. I also used goat cheese from a local producer called Haystack Mountain. We love buying their different cheeses from the Boulder Farmer’s Market.

Goat cheese ice cream may sound a little strange at first but this was yet another amazing recipe from Jeni’s recipe book. She really knows her ice cream. This recipe was for goat cheese ice cream with roasted cherries. The recipe also pairs well with figs in the Fall. I will be trying it again.

The result reminded me a lot of the cream cheese filling in a cheese danish in terms of flavor. It was way more decadent though and rich. The cherries were a nice tartiness to soften the richness a bit.

It really started melting quickly once we got it out of the canister. It was still delicious nonetheless!
