Buttermilk Ice Cream

Tonight starts the holiday of Shavuot which celebrates G-d giving us the Torah; of Moses bringing the Ten Commandments.  It’s this really beautiful holiday, and one of the customs is to…of all things…eat dairy.  I know!  But really.

Usually I make a cheesecake, but this year, I made buttermilk ice cream – and it’s *so* delicious (even if you don’t like the taste of buttermilk).

All it takes is: 1 quart of buttermilk, 1 pint heavy cream, 1 cup sugar, and 1 tsp salt.

Mixed all the ingredients together in the Kitchenaid:

Poured it into the ice cream maker, and over about thirty minutes’ time, it goes through different consistencies:

To serve, I put a couple tablespoons of butter with a couple tablespoons of brown sugar in a pan, brought it up to temperature to make a caramel sauce, added a sliced banana…

Put a little buttermilk ice cream in a tea cup:

Poured the topping over:
