Butter Pecan Ice Cream

I chose this ice cream to make for my reading club.  It was a big hit!   There is just something about Butter Pecan Ice Cream that make it great.    I think it is the rich flavor of the toasted pecans that are then mixed with butter and salt.  Or it could be the brown sugar and heavy cream.   I had to make it twice because a lot of it got eaten before my meeting.  I’m not saying who ate it, but it was eaten quickly!  Writing  that it is very good would be an understatement.  It is so rich and creamy and the toasted pecans,  good gracious who doesn’t love them?    It does have a few steps, but it is well worth it.  I will say it is easier than my other favorite chocolate that I absolutely love.  One bit of advice though,  make sure that you have some good quality pecans.  They are not in season until November so anything that you buy now is last year’s crop.   The ones  you buy from the grocery store are probably not going to be the best quality.    Buy from a reputable dealer that stores their pecans frozen.  They will last indefinitely. Clean them from any of the debris between the meaty part of the nut.  It is bitter and even a small bit can ruin a good recipe.
