This recipe is for my Dad. He's a butter pecan freak! I like this recipe compared to any you can get in the store, as it doesn't have that cloyingly sweet, rich, and stick in your throat quality that the “real" stuff does.

Recipe Directions

SWEET PECANS

1. Pecans will need a full 24-32 hour dehydration time (maybe more). I left mine for 3 days straight until they shattered when I accidentally dropped one on the floor.

2. Soak them in thinned date paste about 6 hours. Drain and lightly salt.

3. Dehydrate.

MACADAMIA NUT MILK

4. Ratio is 1 cup nuts : 2 to 3 cups water. Strain through very fine cheese cloth and then do it again to make the ice cream smooth.

5. Add agave, vanilla, and salt and blend again. I thought this might be a good time to add a splash of rum if desired (didn't have any but will try next time).

6. Place in a glass jar and chill.

7. Fire up your ice cream maker. Shake jar to remix the liquid ingredients (or throw back into the blender).

8. Make ice cream. When the cream is starting to ball up, drizzle date paste in slowly and then the crunched nuts last (keeps them crunchier).

ommmmmmm! This is a plan--I'll have to start w/ almond milk since I now have 10 pounds of unpasturized raw organic almonds and no cashews! Love the creativity!
