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.
