Vanilla ice cream is the perfect canvas for creating ultra-flavorful fruity desserts with Bonne Maman Preserves…but any of your favorite flavors will work too. Or simply use Bonne Maman Preserves as a topping. Add an additional treat by serving your ice cream with Bonne Maman and pieces of fresh fruit.
1 quart Vanilla ice cream home-made or store bought
1 jar Bonne Maman Cherry Preserves
Allow the vanilla ice cream to thaw in the refrigerator (not at room temperature, or it will go too runny); it should become pliable.
Line a cake tin or any other mold with plastic wrap; this works best when the film is dampened on one side. Put in a third of the vanilla ice cream. With a spoon, make deep parallel channels lengthways and fill with cherry preserve. Cover with another layer of soft ice cream, make more channels and fill them with the preserves. Cover up with vanilla ice cream. Freeze the ice cream for at least 3 hours.
To serve, turn the parfait out of the mold, cut into slices and serve with cherry compote if desired. Makes 6-8 servings
