Recipe by Mimi Council.
Cherry Ice Cream Sundaes
Organic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (my favorite is Straus Organic Creamery)
Chocolate Ganache (find recipe here)
6 ounces organic fresh cherries, pitted (plus extra for garnish)
57 grams (1/4 cup) organic cane sugar
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon organic almond extract (like Frontier Co-Op)
To make the compote: Add all ingredients to a small pot, put over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then stir occasionally until the cherries start to burst. You can smash them against the post as well. Allow to reduce by about half, remove from heat. (This portion can be served warm or cold, whatever you prefer!) Store this in the fridge if not ready to serve.
Once the sundaes are ready to be served make the whipped cream.
To make the whipped cream: Add all ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk, starting on low, to avoid splattering. As cream begins to thicken, slowly increase speed to high until you're at full speed. Whisk until stiff peaks form.
To assemble: Scoop vanilla bean ice cream, next add Chocolate Ganache, then Cherry Compote, top with whipped cream, and a cherry.
