Being a "Mainer" I had to try this using our wild Maine blueberries that I picked myself! I added slightly more sugar than called for because the blueberries were a little tart, and it was just enough for our taste. The ice cream was creamy and so delicious! I quickly gave the recipe to my neighbors and family to try and I got back great compliments to pass on to you! This is so easy to make and so easy to eat too! Loved it!
Every year we go to the orchard near my house where they have U-Pick-Em blueberries that are as big as the end of your thumb for $8 a peck basket. You think $8 is expensive, you say? Ever try using up a whole peck of blueberries? That's a dang lot of berries! I freeze them for use throughout the year and scour the internet for great recipes. Well, I found one here. This is incredible, and my husband and stepson could not get enough of it. I did not strain the mixture, because I like the fiber and all of the nutrients that come with it....who am I kidding, I didn't strain it because I'm lazy. And it was wonderful! This is now our one & only Blueberry Ice Cream recipe. Thanks for posting it!
Excellent recipe. Very sweet and creamy. I didn't make enough!
This is the most delicious ice cream. I made it at least five times this summer. Do try this great ice cream.
I made this for my daughters birthday. Boy! Am I glad I did. This was a big hit with everyone. I didn't realize I needed to start this the day before so I just slipped the mixture in the freezer to cool off faster. It was more like sherbet but thats fine with us. Thank you for posting!
This was easy and delicious. I did not have an ice cream maker so used shh's method and it worked out great. I thought it was a bit more like sherbet than creamy ice cream, but the flavor was awesome! Thanks for posting! By the way kids loved it too!
This was awesome! I used Myer lemons for the lemon portion and they have such a nice sweetness, it just added that extra something! We will be making this again and again!
Wonderful! Very smooth and creamy. I used frozen wild blueberries. I did strain after pureeing in the blender as directed but nothing much remained in the mesh strainer so I may skip this step next time. I might reduce the sugar a bit next time (maybe to 3/4 cup), however, my husband thought it was perfect as is. Thank you for the recipe. Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009.
OMG! This is so decadent and couldn't be any easier to make! Thank-you Chef 494440 for directions on how to be your own ice cream maker. We did it using kosher sea salt and it only took 10 minutes of rolling it over and over! We only waited 10 minutes before eating it. It was soft but sooo good! Bev, Thank-you so much! My kids are wheat, corn and peanut allergic and my oldest is turning 17 years old on Monday and we'll make this as a special treat!
Simply lovely! The color is beautiful and the taste is devine. I made a double batch for a Labor Day BBQ and it was demolished! I am looking forward to using this recipe to make many "and Cream" ice cream flavors. Next will be strawberry, then perhaps a mixed berry... Thanks for posting!!
