cherry marzipan ice cream

in an early morning whim
i dragged hubster
to a far-off orchard
to pick
 a bushel of cherries

as we stood in the shade of a  tree
him reaching to higher branches
for the low hanging fruit

cherry stained and gleeful
i half whispered
"isn't this just so much fun"
which hubster responded
as he bent a branch to my reach
this is torture
but i am happy
you are enjoying it"

this ice cream
a love letter
filled with 
sweetness of ripe fruit
rich-depth of ground almonds
 deep warmth of a stiff drink
from me
to him

i must tell you this is not a difficult recipe, but it is complicated
taking many steps and some time
if you are an ice cream person
a special occasion on the horizon
you should make this
it is seriously good
 cherry marzipan ice cream

  2. I am an ice cream person and this sounds absolutely divine! Lovely post!

  4. It's nice that your hubby was being a good sport about the cherry picking. Sounds like a lot of fun to me! Wish we had cherry picking in our area. Your ice cream sounds phenomenal. I'd gladly pick a bushel for a taste!
