You’ll want to save this recipe: Crème Fraîche Ice Cream

We love giving our tarts and cakes a buttery, rich, mildly tangy counterpoint with crème fraîche ice cream. But that doesn’t mean it can’t stand on its own, or be paired simply with fruit. We enjoy it with sliced strawberries, peaches, or sautéed apples and pears – or chocolate shavings. Plan ahead if you want to make your own crème fraîche.

Makes 960ml

Ingredients
480ml crème fraîche
240ml heavy cream
200g sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp kosher salt

Method
In a medium bowl, whisk together the crème fraîche, cream, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing it directly against the surface, and refrigerate until very cold, at least 4 hours.

Process the mixture in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Serve immediately, or transfer the ice cream to an airtight, freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 1 week.

To serve, scoop the ice cream into dessert bowls or serve aside or atop your favourite desserts.
