Blue cheese ice-cream

Brainstorming for summer…

Blue cheese ice-cream with a honeyed fig swirl

With an excess of blue cheese bits and some spare time, we decided to play.

The first attempt…

It was pretty good, made a honeyed fig jam and then swirled it through the blue cheese ice-cream mix right at the end.

The tasting…

Lovely subtle blue cheese on the front of the palate mixed in with the creaminess of the ice-cream and then the gentle sweetness of the honeyed figs coming through to finish.

Next time though I think we will just crumble the blue cheese in at the end to give it more of a blue cheese zing, it was delicious but personally I think it lost some of the spice to the creaminess of the ice-cream!
