Brown Sugar Creme Fraiche Ice Cream

Brown sugar creme fraiche ice cream is a new flavor we started making this year. It is a bit tangy and a great accompaniment to late summer fruit crisps and cobblers. I make my own creme fraiche but feel free to use store bought.

Creme Fraiche
2 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. buttermilk

Combine cream and buttermilk in a pint jar. Stir to mix. Screw on lid and let sit out on the kitchen counter 24-36 hours until thick. Refrigerate for up to a week.
