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)

    I've made this numerous times with half and half and it turned out great! It's of course not as 'creamy' as full fat or with egg yolks, but we love it. The original recipe from Country Woman uses half and half, so any full fat recipe is not exactly the same. I also add a bit of lemon or lime zest to brighten the taste, and puree the berries and do not strain the skin and seeds out. Blueberry heaven!

    So trying this out today. Don't have an ice-cream maker, so will do it by hand (not going to be easy, but will try and have ordered a ice-cream maker which should arrive in a few days). I added some (maybe 1-2 tablespoons) vanilla and only 1/2 cup of sugar as it tasted OK after mixing it. I also pureed the berries rather than getting rid of the seeds and skin.

    I cook quite bit, but this is the first time I've ever left a review for a recipe. I made this ice cream for an early 4th of July celebration, and it got rave reviews from everyone. After reading the other reviews, I also added some vanilla and cinnamon to the blueberries as they cooked and then pureed the mixture rather than straining it. I added about 1 and 3/4 cups of sugar to the blueberries as they cooked. I didn't have half and half in the house, so I used a mixture of whole milk and heavy whipping cream. It was truly delicious!

    I remember making this before(with heavy cream) and it turned out so good. But never in my life would I have used half and half if I had known it would turn into an icy hard block of despair. I was kind of exited to make this for my family until I saw the resulting abomination. Please, I beg you, fix your recipe. Do not use half and half. I don't know when this recipe was changed to say half-and-half but I'm telling you it was a mistake .
