Ice Cream with Berries Galore

Published by at 11:03 pm under Desserts

Let’s face it – Southern California has been hot and humid lately! What better way to beat the heat than to eat ice cream? I know, it would be a lot simpler if I just went through the drive-thru at McDonald’s to get an ice cream cone (my fave!), but we like to challenge ourselves so we spent time to make our own ice cream with a bunch of fruit: blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries – thus, berries galore! This recipe came from Daniel’s culinary school – Le Cordon Bleu in Pasadena. It might not be easy for beginners to understand because everything is in ounces and is a bit more technical. You can use an online converter if needed. Anyway, we made 2 quarts with this recipe – yikes! Does someone want to come over and help us eat it?

Don't these berries like great?

Start by combining sugar with 10 egg yolks (eek, 10 is a lot, but that's what makes the ice cream rich and creamy!)

Cook everything together on low heat until it reaches 180 degrees. Then strain liquid with a strainer to remove any clumps. Next, add heavy cream into the mixture, then place into the fridge/freezer to cool.

Trust me, this recipe will create a really rich and thick ice cream that will probably clog your arteries. At least we added some natural berries to lessen the sweetness! Tip: Add some vanilla bean for a nice vanilla flavor.
