Blueberry Ice Cream

READY IN: 24hrs 30mins
Recipe by Kim D.

Wonderful blueberry ice cream that can be made from either fresh or frozen blueberries. Great summer-time treat! The recipe comes from a Country Woman Magazine, which I purchased just for this recipe. (Prep-time is estimated cooking time and Cooking-time is freezing and ripening time)

This was the BEST ice cream to come from our little ice cream maker yet! It was so creamy and a regal shade of purple. I also left the berry bits in my batch, I also added a small splash of vanilla to the mix. My husband loved it, the whole batch was gone the first day.

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the blueberries, sugar and water; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until sugar is dissolved and the blueberries are softened.
  3. Strain mixture and discard seeds and skins.
  4. Stir in cream.
  5. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two thirds full and freeze according to the manufactur's directions.
  7. Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze.
  8. Allow to ripen in ice cream freezer or firm up in regular freezer for 2-4 hours before serving.
