Habanero ice cream has been on my list for a while, because habaneros pair extremely well with dairy, and also sweets so I thought the combo would be only natural. The milk and sugar also helps remove the heat from the peppers and leaves that sweet tropical pure habanero flavor that is like nothing else in the culinary world. At a farmers market last week Warren Farms had a free sample of their habanero infused maple syrup, and I instantly knew that that would be the flavor of the ice cream. I made it only a few days later!
