If you’re curious how to make this delicious ice cream, and find out what is the most popular flavor, and the very first flavor of ice cream, read on.
Hello my friends. Today we tried another delicious flavor of easy homemade ice cream using one of our gourmet jams. Our Goat Cheese & Raspberry Jalapeño Ice Cream was so delicious and well received, that we decided to make an ice cream using another one of our Pepperlane jams. We give you Pepper in Paradise Pineapple Jalapeno Ice Cream.
We love Pepperlane preserves on sandwiches, as glazes on meats, and as dipping sauces for just about any Asian cuisine, but the very best way, in our opinion, is using it as an ingredient in ice cream. Don’t be scared if you think it might be too spicy. For this pineapple jalapeno flavor to shine through, we originally put in ⅓ cup of the jam and it was not enough. We added some more to make sure the flavor made a statement.
What is the Most Popular Ice Cream Flavor?
There are thousands of different ice cream flavors from chocolate to strawberry to, well, pineapple jalapeno. But if you close your eyes and think about the most popular flavor of ice cream, you probably would guess correctly and say vanilla. Beyond all the other possible flavors, 90% of U.S. households that eat ice cream choose vanilla. It probably wins because it is so versatile. Besides being excellent by itself, you can put so many different ice cream toppings on vanilla without conflicting flavors, and, vanilla goes along with almost every other dessert as “a side” like with pie, cake, soda floats, and just about any other dessert is taken over the top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream next to it.
Fresh Pineapple, and Pineapple Jalapeno Jam
Back to today’s pineapple jalapeno ice cream. This ice cream is so easy, and you don’t even need to add fresh pineapple to get a great taste, but we did. We bought a fresh whole pineapple to include in the photos, so why not put some fresh pineapple in the ice cream, right? We only needed to use about 3-4 teaspoons of fresh pineapple chopped and juiced, and then the ½ cup of Peppers in Pineapple Paradise Preserves.
How to Make this Easy Homemade Pineapple Jalapeno Ice Cream
Making the base of this ice cream is so easy, it takes just 2 minutes. Then after it chills for a few hours, you pour it in the ice cream maker and let it churn for about 20-30 minutes. When you are just about ready to stop the machine, you throw in the pineapple jalapeno jam. Then pour the soft mixture in your freezer safe container, freeze, and before you know it you’ll be enjoying this delicious ice cream.

What was the First Ice Cream Flavor?
Well I can tell you that it’s not pineapple jalapeno, that’s for sure. Although it’s now the most popular, many people think vanilla was the first ice cream flavor. However, in the 4th century B.C., the Roman emperor Nero’s servants collected snow in the mountains for him and it was flavored with honey, nuts, and fruit toppings. It wasn’t exactly ice “cream” or the very first historically recorded ice dessert, but you get the picture.
Easy to Make Ice Cream Flavors You Can Try at Home
Using one of our easy homemade bases, and one of our gourmet jams or caramel sauces makes making homemade ice cream SO EASY. Here are just a few of the ice creams we’ve made for you with jams or caramel sauce as the flavoring, but the flavor combinations you can make are really only as limited as your imagination:
- Vanilla Fig Almond Ice Cream
- Caramel Corn Ice Cream with Vanilla Caramel Swirl
- Strawberry Ice Cream with White Balsamic Vinegar
- Goat Cheese & Raspberry Jalapeño Ice Cream
- Cherry Chocolate Ice Cream
- Pistachio Ice Cream with Rosewater & Saffron
- Pear & Blue Cheese Ice Cream with Pear Preserves, Apricots & Honey
So after you try this Peppers in Paradise Pineapple Jalapeno Ice Cream, give one of these others a try, or make them together at the same time. That’s what we do. Make a double batch of the base, and then all you need to do is refreeze your ice cream maker bowl, and add in the jam at the end. What could be easier than that?
Well, we hope you give this and any of our ice cream flavors a try. If you do, please let us know down in the comments, or even better would be to send us a photo of your creation on social media.
