(Secret Recipe) Ginger Rum Sauce

Shh, this is as simple as it gets…

             Melted ice cream, yum! When we were kids (and even now) we all loved the ice cream “soup” left it the bowl at the end of the treat. Nothing is easier than transforming this childhood memory into a luscious sauce for many types of desserts, not just grilled fruit.

            To top the peaches, I use a ginger ice cream from our local Walpole Creamery; local is best, but use what you can find nearest you. You can use any flavor ice-cream that you love! My husband would prefer a really good vanilla, but peach on peach is pretty wonderful too. You don’t like rum? Leave it out, or use ginger brandy!

1 cup ginger Ice cream

2 tsp. Meyer’s Dark Rum

Let ice cream melt. Mix in rum. Drizzle over peaches. Done.

This is one of my favorite ridiculously easy “secret recipes.” Coconut ice cream works well here too! Or maple walnut…

If you do not have access to a local ginger ice cream, you can mix 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream with a little freshly grated ginger, or a bit of powdered ginger, always to taste, and a teaspoon or so of  sugar to sweeten. Add some finely minced candied ginger for texture.
