Pear Ice Cream with Salted Caramel Sauce

This month for Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to Manu's Menu, where Manuela blogs Italian, Australian and Indian dishes. She has a great story, and it was fun to comb through her recipe archive! In the end I settled on pear ice cream since I have been quite neglectful in making ice cream this summer and because I love pears! I also love anything pear with caramel, and this ice cream is served with salted caramel sauce. Win/win! Manuela also made some lovely pear crisp baskets in which to serve the ice cream, but making the ice cream was about as ambitious as I got this month, as I'm preparing to move houses! I use this ice cream as a lovely treat after a day of work and packing! It's so easy to throw together! I hope you'll try it soon!

In a large measuring cup, combine the cream, milk and sugar.

Whisk it well, then add this mixture to a blender or food processor. Add in the drained pears.

(If you prefer, you can use 2 fresh pears. I used canned for convenience.) Process this until there are only small chunks of pear. Pour into an ice cream freezer

and churn until it reaches soft serve stage.

Transfer the ice cream to a freezer container and freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Top with caramel sauce to serve.
