The Second Best: Goat Cheese Ice Cream with Honey

My best (and most laborious) self made ice cream so far is the tartufo (chocolate and hazelnut ice cream with chocolate core). Now I have found a serious challenger to it. I decided to try how to make ice cream of goat cheese. So, here is my quite simple recipe of goat cheese ice cream, which rises right up to the second place in my top list.

Ingredients
about 80 g goat cheese (chèvre) 
1 dl sugar
1 tbs honey
1/2 organic lemon (zest and juice)
3,5 dl heavy cream
1,5 dl whole milk

Cut of the hard outer part of the goat cheese. Cube the cheece and put the cubes into a bowl. Add the sugar, liquid honey, the grated  lemon zest and lemon juice. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved.

Stir in the milk and cream and refridgerate the mixture until chilled. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer´s instructions. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer-safe container and fold in some liquid honey. Cover and freeze until firm. Serve with fresh raspberries.

To get a stronger taste, use 100 g goat cheese.
