Fiesta Friday #32

 Oh my its blackberry ice cream with a difference!

Seeing that this is the first time I have ever made ice cream I do feel rather proud of myself, even if i say that myself which I know I am not supposed to.  Now I need a gold star, or should I wait to see if you will give me a gold star?

So getting this blackberry ice cream ready involved sourcing the lovely little things who are copiously protected by thorns galore, I even ended up tearing my brand new scarf in the quest for this scrumptious delicasy.

 

This recipe was taken from Nigella Lawson

Ingredients

  • 500 grams blackberries
  • 75 grams caster sugar
  • 30 ml water
  • 300 ml whipping cream

Method

  1. Put fruit in a pan with water & sugar.
  2. Cover & simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Tip into a sieve over a bowl (plastic is best) and push through with a wooden spoon. Chill.
  4. Whip the cream until thick but still soft – it should fall from a spoon.
  5. Add the fruit puree, mix well & freeze for 2 hours.
  6. Mash with a fork or process it. Return to freezer.
  7. Repeat mashing after 2 more hours. Ready after a further 2 hours in the freezer. Serve with extra blackberries and (possibly) my home made ginger snaps.

So what do you think, will you try it?

Happy Fiestering and I hope your having lots of vino and champers and of course food, now to see what you all cooked up, always a treat for moi!

    It’s ok to feel proud of yourself when you are pleased with your accomplishment. Especially among your blog friends who have experienced the same feeling themselves. Such a pretty colour and beautiful matching dishes. Looks super delicious.

    You should be proud of yourself, Justine! I have never made ice-cream, but I would love to try it! I hate the long list of additives that they put in commercial ice-cream! I’m sure that yours is just divine! 😀

    I’m DEFINITELY trying this.. I recently made a sorbet with strawberries and rhubarb and was debating trying something similar with blueberries, (I happen to have a ton of frozen ones on hand)- thank you for the inspiration!

      I imagine it would work as well with blueberries, they have a softer taste than blackberries, if you get the chance to do with blackberries do try, but let me know please how it goes with blueberries hehe x

    Ooh this looks yummy, you should definitely be proud. I made ice cream for the first time this week too and I was very proud of how well it turned out, so go us! Gold stars all round haha.
    Now, I wonder if I can still get my hands on some good blackberries in september…
