Buttermilk and Lekvar Ice Cream

Buttermilk and Lekvar Ice Cream

Lekvar is a traditional Jewish plum paste, most often used as a filling in pastries. It is sour and sweet, with a sticky, chocolate richness that warms the back of your tongue and reminds you of the Old Country. Accentuated by the buttermilk's tart barnyard creaminess and bass notes of dark molasses, this is a delicious conclusion to a Passover seder, Easter dinner, or just a long day.
