Banana-Butter Pecan Ice Cream

Sweet bananas provide a lovely bright counterpoint to the rich pecans and brown sugar that permeate this luxurious ice cream. Top with fresh banana slices and a tasty caramel sauce, or serve over French toast. Pecans, like most other nuts, have a high fat content, making them particularly susceptible to rancidity. Extend their shelf life by storing in an air-tight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
