Blackberry Ice Cream

Remember the awesome blackberry bush in my friend’s neighborhood? After the wonderful pies it occurred to me to make ice cream. It had nice tart flavor from the blackberries and finished in your mouth with a wonderful creaminess.

My recipe was based on the strawberry sauce I make and the Simple Vanilla Ice Cream recipe that came with my Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker.

Blackberry Ice Cream

3 cups Blackberries
¼ cup of brown sugar
2 T lemon juice
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
¾ cup sugar

Combine blackberries, sugar and lemon juice in a saucepan. Simmer until sugar dissolves. After sugar has dissolved allow to simmer for 10 – 12 additional minutes. Allow to cool some. Push the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. This mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If making the ice cream right away, allow mixture to cool thoroughly.

In a mixing bowl combine the blackberry mixture, heavy cream, whole milk, and sugar. Combine until well blended.

Add mixture to ice cream maker and follow manufacturer instructions. I suggest putting into the maker for 25 minutes.
