Dessert recipes - Blackberry ice cream

My son loves blackberries, so I'm excited to try this recipe that I slightly modified!  I found it on Mimi Thorisson's blog, Manger.  Her blog is a feast for the senses, I love it!

Blackberry ice cream
(serves 8-10)


2 cups of blackberries
6 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of water
1 cup of heavy cream


     Rinse blackberries and drain.  In a saucepan, place blackberries, sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, and lemon juice.  Cook for 10-15 minutes on a medium to low heat stirring frequently.  Pass the mixture through a sieve to remove pips.  Set aside and leave to cool completely.  Then, place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

     Combine blackberries mixture with the heavy cream.  Switch your ice cream maker on, pour in cream mixture.  Churn in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.  Transfer ice cream to an air tight container and place in freezer for a few hours or overnight.
