Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce

I received the Kitchen-Aid Ice Cream Maker for my birthday, something I’ve always wanted but never wanted to pay for.  With my greatest of birthday wishes fulfilled, I jumped right into coming up with the craziest ice cream ideas I could think up.  Sure, I could try vanilla or chocolate, but where’s the fun in that?  Instead I’m hoping to make a french vanilla ice cream with a peanut ginger swirl and puffed ramen noodle.

First step?  Finding the right sauce to use.  Below is an adapted version of a FoodTV recipe.  I added slightly more peanut butter and a little sugar to cut the spice without removing it completely.  Grating the ginger is fine, as opposed to using a microplane, because the blender takes care of the rest for you.

Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce (adapted from FoodTV’s The Cookworks recipe)

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Orange Juice
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2-1 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Tbsp EVOO
  • 1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 5 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. grated Ginger

Place all ingredients into a blender and puree. Let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature (in the fridge if not using right away).
