Tuesdays With Dorie—Unbelievably Good Chocolate Blueberry Ice Cream
Simply made with a custard-style chocolate ice cream and blueberry preserves stirred in at the end. I made my own blueberry preserves since I didn’t have any store bought preserves.
1 pint of frozen blueberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
a splash of lime juice
a pinch of salt
Cooked in a saucepan over medium heat until it thickens. Stir often. Remove from heat. Let cool. Blend in a blender or food processor for a minute or so. Strain over a fine mesh strainer (optional).
This made a heaping 1/3 cup of blueberry goodness.
I didn’t quite add all of it to the ice cream, though I should have.
That picture at the top is the ice cream freshly churned and still soft (that’s the way I like it). I tasted a tablespoon or two of the ice cream. It IS unbelievably good.
Here’s the ice cream after its half day stint in the freezer.
Laurie (our fearless TWD leader) has the recipe on her blog, Slush. Next week, because of Christmas, we can do a rewind recipe if we’d like. And then if you can believe it, the week after that we’ll be making/posting the last recipe in the book. sigh
The other recipe chosen for this week is a Puffed Plum Tart and Jules Someone will have the recipe on her blog, Someone's in the Kitchen. No plums around here.
