It is so hot let's make ice cream. Since the blackberries are still plentiful let's use them. Growing up we had homemade ice cream every Sunday. Thank goodness for electric ice cream makers. I don't think I'm up to cranking the old fashioned maker.
This recipe is well over 60 years old. I have changed the directions to make it a little easier.
A big glob of Kentucky Delight on top of this ice cream will make your toes curl.
Old Fashioned Blackberry Ice Cream
Makes 2 1/2 quarts
4 cups blackberries
2 cups sugar
4 cups heavy cream
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Crush blackberries and sugar in a food processor until sugar dissolves; add lemon juice and pulse a couple more times. Force the pulp through a fine sieve to remove the seeds. Stir in cream until well blended.
Let this set in refrigerator until well chilled. Place in ice cream maker and follow manufacturer directions.
Don't over fill your maker. I have to make two freezings with my ice cream maker.
