This is a snow-white light ice cream with an astonishingly vivid pear taste. Were you to make a pear ice cream with eggs and heavy cream, you could never achieve this flavor. The perfume of the pear is your shopping guide. What you want for this ice cream is something you can smell an aisle away.
Plan to serve the ice cream on the same day you make it. Its flavor is fragile and doesn’t last.
Serving Suggestions: Pears poached in red wine, then thinly sliced and fanned, make an elegant base for this ice cream. It would also be lovely alongside a plate of Hazelnut Mounds.
