Ice cream shops and supermarkets offer a variety of choices, but many people are finding that making ice cream at home opens up a whole new world of flavors that can’t be found in the ice cream aisle. Making the ice cream is simple. Roast honey-drizzled pears, puree and combine with the eggs, cream, cinnamon and sugar.
