Tuesday’s with Dorie – Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream August 12, 2008

This weeks TWD was chosen by Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity and it is Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream located on page 434 of Baking: From My Home to Yours. If you go to Dolores’s site you can see the full recipe.

At first when I saw that we were making ice cream I thought that I was going to have to pass on this recipe and make one from the archive, but a miracle happened. My parents were actually driving up to visit, so I called my mom and asked her to bring up my ice cream maker. I have probably had this thing for 10 years, and the last time I used it was over 8 years ago. The core has been chilling in the freezer back home probably for 8 years without being touched. This was the perfect time to see if it worked…


I guess what was more of a miracle is that I had all of the ingredients to make this recipe in my refrigerator and freezer. I was so excited that as soon as I got the ice cream maker and froze the core for 24 hours I made the ice cream. When I started to put the ingredients together I realized that I was short 1/4 cup of sour cream, so I decided to add 1/4 cup of plain non-fat yogurt that I had on hand. It worked out perfectly. The ice cream actually churned up in about 15 minutes, and then I placed it in the freezer to finish hardening. The blueberry sour cream/yogurt ice cream looks fantastic and tastes good too. It has a nice fresh blueberry flavor with a light sweetness and yogurt flavor in the background. Next time I need to puree the blueberries a little more because they were a little chunky. I definitely would recommend this for anyone to try.

    My ice cream maker sits in the freezer for months on end (occasionally years?), but then I go on an ice cream kick and it gets a lot of use for a while. Hopefully yours will get more of a workout now. =)

    What a great idea by adding the yogurt! Your ice cream is such a beautiful color and your ice cream maker works great! It isn’t to often that we get to make something where we have all the ingredients already. Love your pictures too =D

    Ever since I bought The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz, I’ve become even more of an ice cream fanatic; so I too leave my ice cream canister in the freezer, so it’s always ready to make ice cream…hahaha!

    Could you ask for better timing? Everything happens for a reason, and this was definitely a yummy reason.

    Your ice cream is absolutely beautiful. I’ve been thinking that when I make this (I baked a rewind this week) I will use part yogurt. I’m glad you liked the taste.
