Jennie says: With rich caramel echoed at every level, this one is all about extravagance. You could use store-bought dulce de leche to flavor the ice cream or make it using sweetened condensed milk, but making it yourself from fresh milk, while it takes a bit of patience, is easy and fun and immensely more complex and flavorful.

You can use this recipe to make nectarine, apricot or plum or mango ice cream. All of the stone fruits are so delicious freshly cranked. Top with lightly sweetened peaches or berries for a fruit festival!
