The ice cream season is upon us and this is the opening recipe for the season, blueberry ice cream. I don’t even have photos yet, other than of the machine, but I had to share this with you. I feel plain ole happy about our ice cream. We had to play with this recipe because I only had a little heavy cream, in the refrigerator.
Actually, this was made because of the short length of life of the heavy cream. I didn’t want to waste it, so I enlisted my husband to make this and he deserves the credit for this delicious dish. My job was to direct him. Trust that he is a very intelligent man but our conversation went something like this.
He: Did you set out the ingredients?
She: No, I thought that would be your way of helping.
He: Ok . (and he disappeared outside)
Ten minutes later………
He: Would you get the cream?
She: No, That is how you help. (He got it, then.)
He: Where is the cream?
She: In the fridge.
He: No, I meant where.
She: Top shelf – back on the right.
He: And the blueberries?
She: In the fridge.
He: But where?
She: Bottom shelf, left.
He: Got it.
He: It says, “whisk”.
She: So, whisk it.
He: Cam’t find the whisk. Do we have one?
She: Top drawer on the right.
He: Nope, it is not there.
She: Look in the container of miscellaneous items?
She: Oops, It is in the tall closet on the left.
He: I can use the electric mixer.
She: No need.
He: But, it really needs beating.
She: Just whisk it.
about an hour later -
He: This is delicious.
I told you he is very intelligent and he is, just not about working, in the kitchen. I should add that he is one of those rare guys who helps a lot, around the house.
