Pineapple Cinnamon Ice Cream

I don't know about you, but when I get the hankering to make something new, I usually think of what flavors I want to work with first, and then how I can incorporate those flavors into a dish.  Most of the time, I have too many ideas and have to whittle it down to just one.  Lately, I've been thinking what's the point of having you're own blog, if you can't make you're own rules?  I decided there's no reason to limit myself, so I'm going to dedicate a whole month to the flavor/ingredient of choice, and make as many (or few) dishes as I like from that ingredient. What inspired this imaginary-rule-breaking-idea?  Pineapple and Cinnamon.  I had three distinct ideas of how to use these flavors together, and stubbornly refused to pick just one.  So here I am: One month. Two ingredients. Three recipes.  Let's get started.

When I envision pineapple I think of summer, and cinnamon inevitably conjures up images of fall.  So with that in mind, I believe the combination of these two ingredients is a good segue from summer to fall.  My first recipe - with a nod to the end of summer, hot days, and frozen treats - will be of course, ice cream.

Pineapple Cinnamon Ice Cream

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup fresh pineapple (very ripe and sweet) pureed or 8 oz canned crushed pineapple (with juice)

Bring the cream to a simmer over medium heat, add the cinnamon, brown sugar and stir.  Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes. Whip the eggs and white sugar together until light and fluffy.  Slowly whisk the egg mixture into the cream mixture.  Cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.  Chill the cream mixture in the refrigerator until cold.  Once cold, stir in the fresh pineapple.  Add the ice cream to your ice cream machine, and make according to the machine's directions.  Place the ice cream in the freezer until firm.  Serve and enjoy!

Stay tuned to see the next brainchild of this project...

I love the idea of a combo of flavors per month! That's the same for me...when I want to come out with something new I start with flavors/ingredients! Pineapple and cinnamon definitely sound interesting: two things I always have at home but never thought of combining. I'm looking forward the other two recipes! Great job!
