Tuesdays with Dorie: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream


As it turns out my blueberries were more like blackberries. I was not really feeling blueberries this week so I thought I could get a similar color from the blackberries and it would be a slightly different change of pace. This week's selection was chosen by Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity.

I've only had my ice cream maker for a few weeks so I was excited to get to try out again. And with as hot as it's been here ice cream was a welcome cold treat. It was a fairly simple recipe to put together.
I washed the blackberries and then threw them into the saucepan with the other items and let them simmer away for a few minutes. The color while they were simmering was so nice I couldn't wait to see it when the ice cream was finished. After they had cooked I put them in the blender, gave it a few whirls and then added the sour cream and heavy cream and just a little bit more sugar. Very easy. I let it cool for about 1 1/2 hours and then put it in the machine and let it run. It did turn a beautiful color. I left it in the freezer overnight before serving it the next day. Everyone that tasted it enjoyed it, you could taste the sour cream but I didn't find it super overpowering, I thought it complimented the berries really well. I'm sure it's just as good when you use actual blueberries too so maybe I'll try it again with them.


Another great selection! Next week will be Granola Grabbers chosen by Michelle of Bad Girl Baking.
