If you like blueberries, you should try this. Creamy, delicious, and unique purple color. From Global Table Adventure. Makes 2 quarts so if you have a smaller ice cream maker you need to divide it and churn it in TWO batches. I used 1/4 t. cardamom and cardamom was very subtle. Notice that you need to chill blueberry mixture a long time-preferably overnight-I have not included that chilling in prep time. I have a 1.5 quart ice maker so did do it in two batches-but second batch did not get as solid b/c the cylinder had warmed up. Churning took about 25 minutes per batch. Next time I am going to reduce so it fits. This recipe has a different technique-fruit is chilled overnight; LATER cream and milk is added right before churning.
- In a medium saucepan, stir and simmer together the blueberries, water, sugar and CARDAMOM until the blueberries soften and the sugar dissolves —about 5-10 minutes.
- Chill completely in an ice bath or overnight.
- When the blueberry mix is sufficiently chilled, give them a buzz-whir with an immersion blender (or regular blender). You can keep a small scoop unblended for texture, if you’d like. Just keep in mind that large pieces of blueberry will freeze VERY HARD in the ice cream.
- Add the blueberry mixture to an ice cream maker with the cream and milk.
- Churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Eat immediately for soft serve or put in a container and freeze a few hours longer for a harder freeze.
