Believe it or not, but it’s already mid of September!
Here, in Toronto, after a few days of rather refreshing weather, summer has come back again.
Thus, it’s the perfect time for ice cream! Indeed, as I said many times, we love ice cream all year round. But needless to say that on a hot day ice cream is always a good idea. Besides, I tried to find an excuse.
I know, I know. Nobody needs an excuse to have some ice cream. By “some” I mean 1-2 pounds. If you’re having more than this recommended yield, I would recommend finding out an excuse, though.
Today I’ve got something phenomenal. Don’t you believe me? I repeat: PHENOMENAL. Because this Roasted Plum Cinnamon Ice Cream is phenomenal. Period.
In fact, some of my favorite food bloggers have been inspiring me a lot recently. Otherwise, I don’t have any reasonable answer why I’ve ended up cooking the food I’ve seen on their blogs.
First was this Ratatouille Mac and Cheese. Then roasted chicken, another pasta, and a fruit dessert. All these things you will find here soon.
And now this Roasted Plum Cinnamon Ice Cream. When I saw it on the Instagram account of Foodgays, I knew I would make it. When they got the recipe posted on the blog, I hesitated just for one or two days.
Basically, I hesitated because it’s a fruit version. You know that Andrew and I are not the great fans of fruit ice cream. I’m not sure it’s appropriate to say after posting this Gooseberry Mint Ice Cream. And this Peach Cardamom Ice Cream. And this Watermelon Mint Chocolate Ice Cream. And then…
All right. Never mind.
But this ice cream sounded that fabulous and sophisticated, that I couldn’t resist. Needless to say, it turned out this way. Phenomenal. Did I say that already?
roasted cinnamon and plums roasted plums and cinnamon is the fantastic combo.
I just added some hazelnuts and chocolate too. I don’t need any excuse, do I?
But I’ve got to wrap it up because you don’t have much time. Why? Because you’re going to run and grab the late plums. Why? Because you’re going to make this Roasted Plum Cinnamon Ice Cream this fall. Don’t wait till next summer. You would repeat it.
