Apple-Butter Ice Cream with Ginger-Chocolate Ganache

Folding apple butter into vanilla ice cream is a great way to add elegance. Green Aisle Grocery's Adam Erace also adds grated ginger to melted chocolate to make a fast sundae topping; for a more caramel-like sauce, substitute dulce de leche for the melted chocolate.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream
  • 1/3 cup apple butter
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • Gingersnaps, for serving

Preparation

  1. Soften the vanilla ice cream in the microwave at high power for 10 seconds. Transfer the softened ice cream to a medium bowl and flatten it with a rubber spatula. Spread the apple butter on top and fold the ice cream over the apple butter 2 or 3 times. Freeze the ice cream until it is firm, about 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chopped chocolate at high power in 10-second bursts. Whisk the heavy cream into the chocolate. Put the grated ginger in a fine strainer set over the chocolate ganache and press to extract as much of the ginger juice as possible. Whisk the ginger juice into the chocolate ganache.
  3. Scoop the apple-butter ice cream into bowls, drizzle with the ginger-chocolate ganache and serve with gingersnaps.
