Fig and balsamic Ice Cream (helado de higos y vinagre balsamico)












I know I said this many times : I LOVE FIGS !
I know it's not new!
But this ice cream with figs was sooo delicious!
Really I think fresh or dried figs lend a sublime sweetness to all sort of dishes !


Source : A thought for food 










Ingredients

Fig balsamic sauce 

1 cups figs,stems removed and fruit quartered
1/2 cup granulate sugar
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

For Ice cream

2 cups whole milk
4 teaspoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cream cheese softened
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream 
2/3 cup sugar 
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

Method

To make the fig and balsamic sauce, add all the ingredients to a medium saucepan and set over medium heat.
When it comes to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Once the figs begin to soften use a wooden spoon to beak the pieces.
When the sauce begins to thicken, remove from heat and let cool while you make the ice cream base.

To make the ice cream start by stirring together the milk abd cornstarch in a small bowl. Set this  aside. In a separate bowl whisk together the cream cheese and salt.

Combine the rest of the milk, as well as the cream, sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium high heat and cook for 4 minutes.
remove from heat and gradually whisk in the cornstarch mix. Bring back to a boil over and cook stirring with a rubber spatula, until slightly thickened about 1 minute.
Remove from heat.

At this point slowly whisk the hot milk mixture into the cream cheese mixture until smooth.  Let chill by a while and then pour the mixture in freezer about 60 minutes. (have to be thick)

Once the base is almost ready add the ice cream to a storage container, alternating between the base and the fig and balsamic sauce. Freeze in the coldest part of your freezer until firm (at least 4 hours).

  2. Wow, Gloria. I never thought of adding figs to my dairy-free ice cream. Thank you for the tip and the inspiration. I am new to eating figs as of only two years I think. But now, I love them when I can get them fresh.

    Thanks for your inspiration. You rock.
