Fall is officially upon us and I have decided to spend the first few weeks of October devoting this blog to all things Caramel Apple! The plan is to start with this ice cream, move on to my caramel apple pie, and finish up with some gourmet Caramel Apples (my favorite!)! I hope you will enjoy this little series as much as we already have…haha!
When developing the recipe, I was working to combine two of my very favorite things, Caramel Apples and Ice Cream. I had never heard of Caramel Apple Ice Cream, and thought I would give it a try. The result was a delicious ice cream that tasted like fall and caramel, and apples, and apple pie and just really good! It is a unique ice cream for sure, but I have a feeling it will become a “Welcome to Fall” traditional food in our house as it really turned out quite yummy! I hope you will enjoy it too and will come back and let me know if you try it!
My family presses fresh apple cider each fall and even though we live in Seattle, they always manage to get a gallon or two of the fresh fall nectar out to me and my husband and we are always very very grateful! I used this fresh cider as part of the ice cream base, but if you don’t have fresh cider, I am sure some store bought would work just fine.
