Banana-Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Banana-Butter Pecan Ice Cream, as published in Better Homes and Gardens

I love love love butter pecan ice cream–but I don’t like making traditional desserts.  When I saw this recipe had a banana twist, it immediately appealed to me.

The pecans are toasted in butter with a generous dose of salt–giving this ice cream (technically a frozen custard, given that it includes eggs) an amazing salty-sweet flavor.  The custard relies mostly on brown sugar, rather than white, resulting in more of a caramel than a vanilla-flavored base.
