A unique dessert, this recipe for homemade Corn Ice Cream capitalizes on the natural sweetness of fresh corn to make a creamy frozen dessert. Lightly flavored with cinnamon, this creamy Corn Ice Cream can be made without an ice cream maker. After combining all the ingredients over heat, just refrigerate the ice cream, stirring every 30 minutes, for 8 hours. The next time your local grocery store has a major sale on corn, give this frozen treat a try.

I think this dish would be better if the ingredients were stuffed in another kind of pepper. I used jalapenos instead. The dried chilis don't get soft enough , and they are hard to eat.
