Blueberry Ice Cream Recipe

Publisher Photo
The wild blueberries on our property spark recipe ideas. When my daughter and I made this ice cream at a Girl Guide meeting, it was well received. Even today, our 10 children, 19 grandkids and 4 great-grandchildren think it tastes great. —Alma Mosher, Mohannes, New Brunswick

"Way too creamy for me and my family. I'd make again adding the same amount of milk as cream."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2011

"Got out the ice cream freezer after over eight years...yikes!...to make this recipe. I don't know how different wild blueberries are from the blueberries I buy at the grocery store, but when I got done straining the cooked berry mixture, it looked to me like I was going to be discarding a lot of wonderful fruit (and vitamins, which are mostly in the skins). So I ran that through the food processor, and whisked it in to the strained mixture with the half and half before refrigerating. The result was a wonderfully deep purple, full-bodied mixture that my husband described as "delicious!" A perfect return to my ice cream-making that I'll be making again."
