Vanilla Apricot Ice Cream With Butterscotch Caramel Sauce Topping

Ice cream is mostly everyone's favourite . Adults and kids alike just love them. Me, is one big fan of homemade ones. Why? Reason being I can control the amount of sugar and I can have whatever flavours I like. Having a ice cream machine makes making ice cream easier. Lessen steps and the ice cream turns out more smoother too. This time, I made Vanilla Apricot Ice Cream and top with Butterscotch Caramel Sauce. So good. A pair made in heaven. I used canned apricot as fresh apricot not in season . Anyway canned one taste just as good. 
Smooth and creamy texture

topped with butterscotch caramel sauce
always thaw the ice cream for 2mins for easy scooping
I always prepare a jar of butterscotch caramel sauce for ice cream
vanilla beans from the vanilla extract
put them into the milk and heavy cream for the vanilla flavours

Vanilla Apricot Ice Cream With Butterscotch Caramel Sauce Topping

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup  milk
3/4 cup sugar ( I reduce to 1/2 cup sugar )
1 can of Apricot
1 tbsp of vanilla extract 

Combine the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla extract  in a medium saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring , to dissolve the sugar. Place the pan in the ice bath and stir occasionally until it cools to room temperature. Transfer to a container , cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled about 3 hours.
About an hour before you churn the ice cream, add in the chopped and blended Apricots mixture.  Freeze in ice maker according to the manufacture's instruction. Transfer to a container and freeze until firm about 2 hours. Serve with Butterscotch Caramel Sauce.

Butterscotch Caramel Sauce

4 tbsp of unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp flaky salt
1/2 cup heavy cream
1tsp vanilla extract
1. Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, once butter melted, stir in dark brown sugar, salt and heavy cream. 2. Keep stirring with a rubber stapula until well blended for 4 to 5 mins. Scraping the sides occasionally.
3. Remove the mixture from the heat, add in the vanilla extract. Once cooled you can add in a tsp of whiskey if you like ( optional ) 
4. Store in glass jar. It will thicken once cooled. Can store in fridge and reheat in microwave.
