I have plans to make cherry ice cream for Christmas (a friend is packing cherries this year) I feel like it needs a spice or something in it, but I have no idea what. What would you add?
(I will also be making chocolate ice cream, and rhubarb/ginger icecream)

Alcohol.

Guessing brandy would probably be best. Kirsch is cherry brand, yes? Maybe bourbon if you/your friend is a fan.


Coconut and chocolate for Cherry Ripe icecream?

Saw a recipe with cardamon but not sure how that would go...

I'm making it for the family, my friend is just supplying the cherries. Bourbon is more likely to be around than brandy though.
Almonds might be interesting, but I don't know how I'd do that (not almond essence. Chunks of almond?)
I saw a recipe for something with cherries and rose water. I love rose water, but does the combination sound appealing?

I'd toast flakes then bash them up a bit, maybe add a bit of essence...or amaretto. Mmm.

Mmmmmm amaretto. Although I had a hard time finding it last time I needed it.

Not a fan of rose water so I'm no help.

Ok I don't like cherries, however brandied cherries are sooooo good!

Second (or triple) armaretto otherwise.

I'd get almond slivers and toast them and chuck them in. Almonds go well with anything smile.gif

kirsch or amaretto for sure.

Almonds in icecream can go quite cardboardy once they're mixed in unfortunately, although you can serve the icecream with toasted flakes on top. One option is to put in whole chocolate coated scorched almonds. The Connoisseur Coffee icecream has these and it's wonderful ph34r.gif biggrin.gif
