Strangest Scoop of all

This is the most unusual scoop of ice cream I have ever seen~ Roquefort-Honey Ice Cream.

If it hadn't been PalmaBella's choice from 'The Perfect Scoop', I would have never tried it. I am a dedicated Sunday Slow Scooper, so here it is.

Roquefort-Honey Ice Cream
6-8 Tbs honey
4 ounces Roquefort or blue cheese
1 cup milk
4 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
Warm the milk. Slowly incorporate the egg yolks. Cook the custard until thickened. Place the cheese in a bowl with a colander on top. Pour the custard through the colander to catch any bits of scrambled eggs. Stir until most of the cheese is melted. Stir in cream and honey and stir until cool over and ice bath. Chill according to directions.
Cheese and pears go together, so I served mine up with a scoop pear crisp. Made quickly with our WhistleStop Apple Crisp . This was the perfect blend. The combination of the blue cheese, pears, and sweet crisp worked well together.

Now, Bill is a southern meat and potatoes kind of guy... his idea of ice cream is a big bowl of vanilla or maybe moosetracks. This was not his favorite~ but I did notice that there was nothing left in the bowl when he was done. Trying something different every now and then is fun.

This is worth a try!
Y'all enjoy!

Sandi-Your ice cream and pear crisp really look good. I love how you can see pieces of the cheese in the ice cream.

Hi Sandi,
