Friends, this continues my mini series of a meal that uses blackberries, we have had the main course of venison with blackberries and red cabbage and half the desert of blackberry and apple cake To go with this we now have blackberry ice cream.
This is a very easy recipe, and produces a very rich tasty ice cream, that goes well with the cake … This requires an ice cream machine to make it.
500 g blackberries
150g sugar (icing sugar makes it quicker to make)
300 ml double cream
Up to 3 tablespoons of port
Wash blackberries and lemon.
Put lot into liquidizer and whisk to a pulp
Put liquid through a fine sieve or muslin bag (Make sure squeeze all juice out) collecting the juice in a microwave proof jug/bowl
Warm juice in microwave for about 30 seconds
Add sugar to warm juice – make sure fully dissolved (If did not use icing sugar may need to warm for a few more seconds)
Allow to cool
Turn on ice cream machine
Add cream to bowl in ice cream machine
Add blackberry juice with dissolved sugar.
Add port if going to.
Leave machine to do its work freeze churning the mixture
When made serve with blackberry cake or fresh fruit and enjoy.
