Maple Walnut & Rum Ice Cream






There is no better summertime treat than a bowl of homemade ice cream. Ever since I bought my Lello Gelato Maker earlier this year, I have taken full advantage of the masses of fresh berries in the markets these days and created delicious Strawberry, Blackberry and Cherry Gelatos, right here in my own home. Having won a pint of Brooklands Farm Maple Syrup this past weekend, my husband took Gelato matters into his own hands, and decided to make his first batch of homemade ice cream — Maple Walnut and Rum!



Maple Walnut & Rum Ice Cream
Makes about 4 cups


1 cup heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup Rum
3/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/2 cup walnut pieces


Pour the cream, milk, rum, maple syrup and walnut pieces in the bowl of an ice cream maker, and freeze 40-50 minutes.
