Homemade Berry Ice Cream

I’m a purist when it comes to ice cream. As few ingredients as possible are what make the best frozen treat. That’s why I’m such a fan of this Homemade Berry Ice Cream. Six simple ingredients, incredible taste!

During the summer months I pull out my ice cream maker (I use this Cuisinart model) and load up our freezer with homemade vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter cup and this berry ice cream. I love watching guests taste ice cream as it should be.

Berry Ice Cream

3/4 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and halved
2/3 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk

In a small saucepan, combine the strawberries, raspberries, 1/4 cup sugar and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring, and cook until jam like, about 10 minutes. Let cool, cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream, milk, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and another pinch of salt until the sugar is dissolved; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Using an ice cream machine, process the cream mixture according to your machine’s instructions. Fold in the chilled berry mixture to make a swirl pattern and then transfer to an airtight container. Freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Let sit for 15 minutes before serving. Warning: Do not attempt to eat all this on your own. Dangerous curves ahead if you get what I’m saying.

Sarah McLachlan is the real deal. Talented, beautiful, and from all accounts kind and unaffected by her fame. This song always makes me smile. Every time I hear her voice, I drift away. It’s ethereal.
