Tuesdays with Dorie Post Number 9: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

Well, the Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for this week was true summertime bliss: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream. Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity chose this week's recipe, and if you would like to try making this fab ice cream, the recipe will be posted on her blog.
I used frozen blueberries for this recipe, trying to make sure that I drained the excess liquid from the bag. The recipe also called for lemon juice and lemon zest, which added a delicious flavor to the finished ice cream.
I doubled the recipe, so when I put it in the blender, I had this lovely moment where I thought "I wonder if the lid will stay on?" It did, but I was glad that I held the lid in place... The custard was rich and creamy, and I let it chill in the fridge over night. It set up nicely into a thick custard.
The ice cream was put in an ice cream freezer the next day, and turned out a delicious batch of blueberry happiness. I have never made ice cream from a recipe before, and if not for Tuesdays with Dorie, this probably would have been another one of those recipes that I looked at longingly, but never made. Hurray for blueberries!

Be sure to check out all the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll for lots more blueberry madness!

Yours looks great and creamy. I'm the same way. I never would have attempted homemade icecream if not for this group!

Kayte said...

Very nice looking...and I was wondering if one could make a double batch and have it all work. Thanks for the info.

I, like you, am thinking that TWD is really great for getting me motivated and making things I would normally not bake, make, etc. It has been a big hit around here.

I doubled it too -- I'm used to recipes that make a quart, so it's just luck that I noticed that this one only made a pint. It was good, wasn't it?

Here here to trying new things! I would have never even considered making my own ice cream if not for TWD, but then again before TWD I didn't even know that baked goods came without plastic cellophane wrappers.

Mmmm, yours looks like it has a really nice texture.

Great job, it looks fantastic!
