Blueberry Lemon Ice Cream


...and it all started from finding a pack of blueberries in the fridge...

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 strips lemon peels
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
Directions:
  • In a medium saucepan, boil together blueberries, sugar, salt, lemon juice and lemon strips over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, remove from heat and cool down. Discard the lemon peels.
  • In a blender, puree blueberry mixture with milk until smooth, stir in heavy cream. Pour puree into a bowl, chill covered for about 2 hours, and up to 1 day. Freeze mixture in an ice cream maker. Transfer ice cream to an airtight container and put in the freezer to harden.

    Let's just say the canister for the ice cream maker just popped its little self into the freezer.
