Today is the first day of National Ice Cream Month. What?! Why didn't they just make it National Denice Month? I do keep the dairy business in the black when it comes to ice cream.
This morning I decided to use a few more of those sweet cherries and make some ice cream. I haven't made any ice cream yet this summer, another indication life around here is not normal right now.
This is where the improvising comes in. I found this blueberry ice cream recipe and love it. It doesn't use eggs so it doesn't have a custard base. You can see I make notes as I improvise. You can see this recipe makes two quarts, well my ice cream maker is one quart capacity and after that first time, I made a note to halve the recipe. You can see I also made it with peaches and the sticky note shows when I experimented with making apple butter ice cream in the fall. THAT was luscious. What I was doing was trying to continue using this recipe that doesn't use eggs. I sometimes have trouble with the texture of the custard based ice creams but this one tastes so fresh and it's so easy it's almost my 'go to.'
Happy Ice Cream Month!
