The Food Matters Project: Cherry and Cacao Nib Ice Cream

It's wild card week! I missed Margarita's chocolate and cherry panini's a few weeks back, so I decided to turn the same ingredients into an ice cream with crunchy cacao nibs.

I used the recipe from Simply Recipes, which looked divinely purple and full of cherry flavor. My results were somewhat less desirable. The cream overpowered the cherries a bit (not so much that it wasn't edible, mind you), but I would have preferred more of the fruit to come forward. Next time, I'll just add a lot more cherries. Instead of chocolate chips, I used about 1/2 cup of cacao nibs and stirred them in just before putting the ice cream in the freezer.

Hi Nicole! This is a great idea... that is always my problem when I have attempted homemade ice cream, my cream is always too much and I can barely taste the fruit, even though I feel like I have added more than I should. I'm sure with a little tweaking, this will be perfect!
