A recipe from Savoie, the French Alps. A perfect summer recipe,or, since fresh blueberries freeze so beautifully, one you can make in winter to make it feel, for just a moment, like midsummer. Wild blueberries (called huckleberries in my childhood) are best, but any blueberries are better than none.

i made this with 18 oz of organic jam from trader joes. the puree took several hours to freeze before i added the whipped cream, then several more hours to refreeze. this is a light frozen pudding and it is very refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day.
