If There's a More Perfect Flavor, I'd Like to Know About It

Commenter Ryan B. noted a certain Scene writer's fascination with the idea of salted caramel ice cream. He made a batch, and, in an example we certainly hope sets an example, brought it to the offices of the Nashville Scene.

I just happened to be in the neighborhood. Just happened. And I can tell you that salted caramel ice cream is sheer madness, and madly good. The rich caramel drapes itself over the buttery bolster of heavy cream, decorated with the occasional flake of sea salt. Every bite is like sinking into a butterscotch velvet down-filled sofa.

I just happened to be in the neighborhood again the next day. I know--what are the chances?--so I had it again for breakfast!

Thanks, Ryan B, for the ice cream--and for an inspiration. With a neighborhood fig tree bent over with figs, we're thinking fig ice cream with a salted caramel swirl. Can you share the ice cream recipe?
