    Blackberry Ice Cream
    We have had a great year for berries here in Upper Michigan. Hot weather for most days and rain about one day a week. Our blueberry, raspberry and blackberry plants producing just an unreal amount of berries. I love home made ice cream. This Blackberry Ice Cream Recipe was a great way to use some of the fresh berries. A beautiful color with a fresh delicious blackberry flavor. It is a simple recipe. Most of the time is used letting the ice cream mixture cool before putting it in the ice cream machine.
    I have a small ice cream machine. My only regret was it was not big enough to double the recipe. Enjoy

      1. Nicely done! I love that you did a custard, that is my favourite kind of ice cream. Now I am just waiting for blackberries to go on sale so I can make this! :)
