Blueberry Ice Cream
(from Noble Pig)
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen, if frozen, thaw and drain)
- 1/3 cup sugar, or more to taste
- Pinch of salt
- Zest of one lime
- Juice of 1/2 a lime, or more juice to taste
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup sour cream
In a medium saucepan cook blueberries, sugar, salt, lime zest and juice over medium heat, stirring until mixture boils and the berries pop and soften, about 4 minutes.
Pour the berry mixture into a blender and whirl until a puree is achieved, about 1 minute. The mixture will not be completely smooth. Add the heavy cream and sour cream and pulse to blend. Taste and add a bit more lime juice or sugar if you choose.
Pour the blend into a bowl and refrigerate until it is chilled before churning into ice cream.
Tip: If you don't like blueberry skin, after blending the blueberries try to put the mixture through a sieve to get rid of skin, and then finish adding the creams.
