Roasted Cherry Bacon Ice Cream

This roasted cherry bacon ice cream is an unbelievable salty & sweet combination.

These three ingredients will change you. In an “omfg, I need to eat this every single day for the rest of my life” kind of way.

Ok, so sometimes I exaggerate a bit. This isn’t one of those times though. Swear.

First, let’s talk about these cherries which is what the actual bookmark is.

I don’t know, is there even anything to say about cherries + honey + balsamic vinegar because I had no words when I saw them, just drool slowly making it’s way down my chin. How’s that for an unattractive visual?

The bacon and ice cream part was my idea. We bought something like 25 pounds of meat from a local farm recently and I cannot stop eating this bacon. It’s out of this world delicious and salty with that perfect proportion of fat to meat that store bought bacon never gives you. So naturally, I’ve been adding it to everything. My stove top is in a constant state of grease splatter-age but my mouth has never been so happy.

It’s a sweet and salty lovechild of epic proportions. And I don’t even like kids.

    Ahhh this looks so delish! It’s almost time for breakfast…. maybe this would suffice ;)

    As for pitting cherries… it’s a pain. Or it WAS a pain. Once I figured out that you could make a cherry pitter with a FORK, we’ve been going through pound after pound of cherries. Cherries in clafoutis. Cherries in salad. Cherry mojitos. Cherries in quinoa. Cherries in ice cream. Cherries in smoothies. So delish!
