Homemade Raspberry Ice Cream

Dish it Up!
Razzle Me Dazzle Me 
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.

  2. Isn't making ice cream so much fun?! My great grandmother loved making it in the summer at family gatherings (like on the 4th of July). This post makes me think of her. We haven't made ice cream since she died. Your's looks delish, I'm craving razzleberry sorbet now!

  5. @ Chef D and Maren.... I am thrilled that this brings back memories to people. I remembering picking berries in northern Wisconsin. We ended up being caught in a terrible rain storm, with my father pushing me while I was nestled in a wheel barrow, him running swiftly, escaping the lightening and thunder. Oooh how those berries thrown into the recycled Folgers cans tasted so wonderful upon arrival at the cabin.
