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 homemade 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

Fresh blueberries from the patch turned into an ice cream creation. The blueberry flavor is just intense. The color is beautiful.
Combine this together with the texture of Home made ice cream and what a treat!
