Elefante Green Gold™ Pineapple Ice Cream with Pineapple-Caramel Sauce


For the Ice Cream

  • 2 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 cup Whole Milk
  • 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar, divided use
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 4 Eggs Yolks

For the Sauce

  • 1/2 Melissa’s Elefante Green Gold™ Pineapple – finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 stick Unsalted Butter
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon Kosher Salt


For the Ice Cream

  1. In a saucepan, add the cream, milk and 1/2 of sugar.
  2. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla beans into the saucepan and drop in the vanilla bean pods.
  3. Stir in the vanilla extract. Stirring often, scald the saucepan contents until small bubbles appear around the edge of the pan then remove from the heat.
  4. In a small bowl, whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until smooth, like a ribbon.
  5. Pour some of the scalded liquid into the egg mixture and mix well. Add that back to the scalded liquid in the saucepan and cook over low heat until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  6. Strain mixture into a bowl and stir in the pineapple. Place the mixture into the refrigerator and chill completely.
  7. Place in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions.

For the Sauce

Place all of the sauce ingredients in a saucepan and mix well. Simmer over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes, stirring often, until it becomes a smooth caramel color. Let it cool. Serve over the ice cream. (Makes about 2 cups of sauce. )
