Two things in the food world change for me when fall arrives. First, pumpkin spice lattes dominate my mid-afternoon treats for the next three months. Second, apples are in just about everything I make. Even then I can hardly get enough of them.
Apples go with just about anything. The sweet crunch of perfect, raw specimens is such a great texture that works well in salads, on sandwiches or just by themselves. When cooked, they add a soft texture and extra sweetness to just about anything. They pair well with pork and chicken, are heaven enveloped in a pie crust, and are great for the body too. What could be better?
Beside the fact that this ice cream has sweet cooked apples threaded throughout, it’s made with Arkansas cream and milk. Locally grown doesn’t always have to apply to produce, and the sweet creaminess of this ice cream is a sign of the freshness of raw ingredients. And the good news? You can surely find local milk and cream too!
Enjoy this ice cream with a perfect slice of pie or just a steaming mug of coffee for a fantastic dessert made from the best in the state.
