Original Ice Cream Flavor: Apple Chardonnay Ice Cream with Bulgarian Sheep Cheese Ice Cream Chef: Anna What inspired this recipe? A deep love of having a glass of wine with slices of apples and cheese. Zeta's Greek Emporium in Columbus, Ohio for having the best cheese I've tried. And more than a little nostalgia for apple orchards in the Fall. Tastetester comments and full recipe after the jump. Take a look, then vote here!
Tastetester Comments: "I was a little nervous about the cheese, but tasting it all together is awesome! You made enough for me to take home, right?" - My friend/co-worker (/guinea pig) Apple Chardonnay Ice Cream with Bulgarian Sheep Cheese 1 c. Cream 2 Egg Yolks 6 Tbs. Sugar 1/4 tsp. Allspice 3/4 c. Whole Milk 1/2 Apple roasted, peeled, chopped 2 Tbs. Apple Butter 1 tsp. Vanilla 2 Tbs. Chardonnay 2 1/2 Tbs. Equivalent. Bulgarian Sheep Cheese (Feta-style or replace with domestic feta) In a small saucepan, mix the cream, egg yolks, sugar, and allspice over low heat. Bring just under a boil and allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a medium mixing bowl. Add vanilla, milk, apple butter, and chardonnay, then stir. In an oven or microwave (2 minutes should be adequate for the microwave), roast the apple until soft, but not mushy. Peel and chop into 1/2 to 1/4-inch pieces. Set aside. Crumble the sheep cheese into small granules. Add both apple pieces and cheese to the cream mixture. Stir well to incorporate, but do not overwork (you want to retain the crumbly texture of cheese). Spoon into ice cream maker of your choice and proceed according to the manufacturer's instructions. Eat and enjoy!
