I had two tubs of vanilla ice cream sitting in my freezer left over from a family party and while I love vanilla ice cream, I wanted something with a little bit more interesting. An idea came to me after breakfast yesterday morning as I had a ton of dried tart cherries that I had reconstituted in orange juice to serve over oatmeal. The cherries were soft and juicy and developed a rich flavorful syrup so I thought this would be perfect to mix into the ice cream. I grabbed one tub of ice cream that was already partially eaten and added the cherries. To compensate for the sweetness I mixed in some used goat cheese to give it a tart flavor. I got the idea after seeing how some people make cream cheese ice cream by basically mixing cream cheese into vanilla ice cream and serving with fruit.
