Roasted Plum and Cinnamon Ice Cream
Roasting fruits causes their natural sugars to melt into a thick, delicious caramelised syrup. Most foods that are roasted or heated to a fairly high heat taste better because of this phenomenon, (called the Maillard reaction).
What I love about doing this with loads of different recipes is that you are adding flavour, depth of flavour without adding any new or additional ingredients to whatever it is you are making. So for this recipe, think outside of just plums, roast any stone fruit and add other spices as you wish. The added sugar helps the scoopability of the ice cream once frozen.
The other easy swap out is the dairy on this one too. It is such a small quantity, it could even be left out entirely, though it is lovely when included. But you could easily use other nut milks or creams of choice for a dairy free option.
I'd love to see where this takes you! Let me know.
