My parents gave me the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer for my birthday and I was eager to get started using it! I had always been afraid to try making ice cream because I thought it was a long and involved process; but it definitely wasn't. It's as simple as mixing the ingredients, chilling them, then mixing in the ice cream maker and freezing.
This was a lovely summer ice cream - light and fruity. The sour cream makes it taste a little bit like yogurt, but we really enjoyed it!
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen (if frozen, thaw and drain)
Combine the blueberries, sugar, salt, lemon zest and juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until the mixture boils and berries pop and soften, about 3 minutes.
Place the berry mixture in a blender and puree until mostly combined, about 1 minute. Add the heavy cream and sour cream and pulse to blend. Taste and add more lemon juice or sugar if you'd like.
Pour the custard into a bowl, and refrigerate until chilled.
Pour custard into an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer's instructions. Pack ice cream into a container, cover, and freeze at least 2 hours, until firm enough to scoop.
