End of Summer Ice Cream

The end of summer is fast approaching and that means the beginning of my favorite season is just around the corner.  I thought I’d celebrate this summer season with an ice cream dessert that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Here is my recipe for Carmelized Bananas A La Mode:

Ingredients:

1c granulated sugar

2-3 T of heavy cream

1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp of ground cardamom

2 ripened bananas sliced

1/4 c crushed honey roasted peanuts

vanilla ice cream

sea salt

Put all of the sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium high heat.  You can stir this as often as you like and it shouldn’t crystalize.  Continue to stir and heat until the sugar liquifies and turns caramel brown in color.  Reduce the heat to medium low and add your cream and spices.  Add your sliced bananas and add them to your sauce until heated through.  Pour the sauce over some scooped vanilla ice cream and garnish with the crushed honey roasted peanuts.  Finish with a small sprinkling of sea salt.  We enjoyed this dessert on a balmy evening on our deck and it was divine!
