Apricot Toasted Almond Ice Cream


7 apricots, soft and pits removed
1 Tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups sugar
2 cups whipping cream
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup almonds

Special Equipment needed: Ice Cream maker

Mash or blend together the apricots, lime juice, and almond extract.

Stir in the sugar, then the whipping cream and milk. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 500˚F. Loosely chop the almonds and spread into the bottom of a glass pie pan. Toast the almonds in the oven for a few minutes, be careful not to burn them.

Toss the almonds into the fruit/sugar/milk mixture and stir.

Pour mixture into the canister of your ice cream maker (make sure the paddle/blades are in first) and chill according to your machine's instructions.

When it is finished, transfer to a freezer safe container and chill in the freezer to firm up more.
