PB & Jams Peanut Butter Ice Cream
I have discovered a new appreciation to an old favorite. Peanut butter. I always loved the flavors of pulverized legumes, oil, and salt. Until my adulthood, I thought Peter Pan was the way to go. When I tried natural peanut butter my head exploded because all the natural flavors really came through.
The warmer weather that urged me to whip out the old ice cream maker. With a jar of PB&Jams peanut butter, sugar, and the necessary dairy I made a wonderful peanut butter ice cream.
I topped it off with fresh blueberry preserves to make it a summertime frozen peanut butter and jelly combination.
I used a cream cheese (yes, cream cheese) ice cream recipe from Epicurious made with one modification.
In it, I blended 1/3 cup of fresh peanut butter with the cream cheese.
PB&Jams is planning to join the Philadelphia food truck army sometime this year. I will be happy to have my cabinets filled with peanut butter and the other nutty flavors available.
