Is it just me, or do blackberries seem to get the short end of the summer berry stick? Sometimes I wonder if their less brilliant dark color makes them subconsciously less appealing than their brighter counterparts. Whatever the case may be, don’t overlook blackberries this summer. They can be lovely in many sweet treats…and as I type that, several savory ideas just popped into my mind as well…hmmm. Anyway, of all the blackberry desserts I have tried, this ice cream is without a doubt my new favorite. That dark purple color transforms into a luscious purple-pink hue when these babies are folded into a creamy custard ice cream base. The blackberry flavor is a slightly subtle, and the berries-and-cream combo is a perfect summer treat.
On a related note, I am absolutely loving the recipes I have tried from Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones thus far. The ice cream recipes in particular have had a perfectly creamy and easily scoopable texture, even after days of freezing. Okay, twist my arm to try a few more… ;)
