The wild blueberry season is coming to an end. I've been out picking and I think I'll go one more time. Maybe tonight. I can most, I freeze some. I make a lot of blueberry mufins and blueberry cobbler. The other night we made blueberry ice cream. I found a simple recipe.
Blueberry Ice Cream
2 cups cleaned blueberries
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
Bring blueberries, salt and sugar to a boil. Mash berries and simmer for 5 minutes. Cool slightly and put in blender with milk. Puree until smooth. Stir in cream. Cool mixture, covered, for at least two hours. Freeze in your ice cream maker.
I discovered that if I just open a pint of blueberry sauce and mix with milk and cream I can freeze that. How easy. The recipe calls for puttting the mixture through a sieve before you cool it. I didn't. I like berries, whole and in part in my ice cream.
Well it's off to the garden.
God bless your day as you bless Him.
