Dish me Up Please!
Mama's got raspberries up to her knees!
Somewhere, somebody is eating fresh picked berries. Standing in their open field, just after the summer rains, gorging themselves on these beauties. Oh how I wish it was me! I am bound and determined to have raspberries at my new house. I have planted these tiny little jewels at several of my past haunts.... and now that I own my own home, it is about time to open the earth and plant these berry making brambles.
Do you remember the last time you picked raspberries?
Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream
Step 1: Mix 1 pint FRESH Raspberries... (I will not make this with frozen berries, absolutely sacrilege) with 1/2 cup sugar. Let them macerate on the counter for 30 minutes.
Step 2: In a separate bowl, combine 3/4 cup sugar with 1 cup Half and Half, whisk until nicely combined. Add 3 egg yolks, one at a time- whisk away. Add 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream and 1 tsp vanilla...( make it organic if your pocketbook allows). Stir in raspberry juice. Not Berries.
Mash berries with the end of your whisk and stir into cream mixture. Pour into your ice cream maker and cream until ready. Put into freezer container and wait at least 6 hours before eating.
