Homemade Blackberry Swirl Ice Cream
I wasn’t eating my blackberries quite fast enough and I didn’t want them to spoil so I decided to use them in ice cream. I turned to my favorite ice cream book, Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompaniments by David Lebovitz and chose a recipe I’d used before. All you need to do is make your favorite vanilla ice-cream and once it’s finished in the ice cream machine, layer it with mashed blackberries that have had a little sugar added to them. You can also add a little vodka to them (like a tablespoon or two) to help keep them from freezing too solidly.
When you scoop the ice cream from the container the layers create a swirl effect. Simple! If you don’t have an ice-cream book I really recommend David’s. I have three ice-cream books but his is the only one I really use.
