Roasted cherry icecream – life is delicious

Life is just a bowl of cherries.

roasted cherry icecream

Deep toned . Cherry red color. Plump with shiny cheeks. Cherries are cute little sweet bombs.

They entice you with their sweet whispers “pick me up ! pick me up, pretty please !

 

red cherries

You pop some in your mouth, dunk some in the brandy and chopped some in the brownies.

Then an evil idea strike you.

You put some cherries on a baking dish. Shower them with brown sugar. Sneak a stick of cinnamon into it.

Shake it up !

… deep into the oven.

A sweet  blast of flavor hints you that cherries are roasting in the oven.

Now they look more sexier. Glistening in their own juices, cherries becomes more robust.

Sugar and caramel adds wonderful flavor with a mild hint of spice.

Roasted cherries are simply phenomenal.

Ice cream screams aloud !

Instructions
Roast the cherries

  3. Sprinkle brown sugar over it.
  4. Sneak a stick of cinnamon in the baking dish, or any other flavor you want to.

Cherry icecream
  1. Whip the heavy cream with a teaspoon of sugar, till it attains the stiff peak.
  2. Fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk and blend it gently with a rubber spatula till you get the desired smoothness.
  3. Fold in the roasted cherries, mix it in cutting action.
  4. Since I was making some brandied cherry at home, so I have added few drops of cherry liquer in the ice cream. But this is optional step.
  5. Freeze it in a freezer safe plastic box and let it freeze dor 45 minutes.
  6. After 45 minutes, when it starts to freeze at the edges, whip the icecream again with an electric blender.
  7. Again freeze it for at least 8 hours before serving.

 Verdict : This recipe has been adapted from the recipe site of Eagle brand condensed milk . Condensed milk makes a very rich and creamier ice cream, no icicles whatsoever. The roasted cherries adds beautiful color and heightens the flavor. A very simple, easy and delicious icecream. Add your flavours and make it yours.

Now smile please.

    such a lovely blush of pink….cherry ice cream is now our new favorite way to enjoy these summery delights…if they get saved from being poped up right into the mouth after cherry picking that is 🙂

    It wasn’t until a few months back that I started using roasted veggies and fruits and now that i have, I am totally crazy about the robust flavor that roasting imparts them.
    The cherry ice cream is looking fabulous and calling my name! 😉

    I knew I wanted to make something with them (if I could only just stop popping them straight into my mouth that is). I found inspiration from a recipe I saw online, and just amended the cherry filling. While the original recipe used fresh cherries, I decided to roast the cherries to give them a more intense flavour. The original recipe did not state to bake the tart shells, but I like my crusts crunchy, thus I decided to place them in the oven for a little while. I also used a mix of the many Valrhona chocolates I had on hand (primarily Jivara milk, with hints of a few dark varieties).

    […] have often heard people saying “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy ice cream and that’s kind of same thing.” So true, happiness is having an ice cream even at 2 pm […]
