Apricot pecan icecream and a chilled chardonnay

We’re approaching August and its hot.  At least were I am.  What better fix for a hot afternoon than ice cream and a chilled glass of a quality chardonnay?  This pairing  would be great to entertain a guest and is perfect to serve later in the afternoon when it starts to cool down.  The recipe below is simple; a nice presentation will be sure to impress your friends.

1 lb apricots washed, stoned, and small diced

1/4 lb pecans shelled, and halved

10 oz whipping cream

1/4 cup or caser sugar

1.  Whip the cream to  supersoft peaks (slightly firm but still falling of a spoon)

2.  Gently fold the rest of the ingredients into the cream, place in a freezer safe bag.

3.  After 3-4 hours place the ice cream in a large bowl, let it set for five minutes then mix the mixture with a large fork.  Place ice cream back in freezer for 3-4 hours. 

4.  Be sure to let the ice cream sit at room temp before service. 

5.  Garnish with a few slices of fresh apricot and crushed pecans. 

6.  Here is a link to a great wine selection http://forgeroncellars.com/accolades/?c=chardonnay
