My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Old Fashioned Blackberry Ice Cream

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
print recipe

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.

  1. Homemade ice cream every Sunday. Weren't you lucky. We made peach, vanilla and banana on a few memorable occasions. I have never tasted store-bought ice cream that tasted as good as I remember. Maybe I should get an ice cream maker. This recipe sounds so good.
