Buttermilk Ice cream with olive oil and fleur de sel

Home-made ice cream Buttermilk with olive oil and fleur de sel.
Here’s the scoop on making fancy, fun ice cream flavors:


  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • Fruity, extra-virgin olive oil
  • Flaky sea salt, preferably fleur de sel


In a small saucepan, warm cream over low heat with sugar and corn syrup, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill the mixture thoroughly, at least 8 hours.

Stir buttermilk into the chilled sweetened cream and freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once churned, transfer the ice cream to a container and freeze for a few hours, until firm enough to scoop.

To serve, scoop the ice cream into bowls. Drizzle each serving with olive oil and sprinkle with a flurry of sea salt.

Makes about 1 quart, about 8 servings.
