Homemade Berry Ice Cream
Here’s a great recipe on how to make homemade ice cream using berries from your garden. This recipe calls for raspberries, but it looks simple enough that other berries such as strawberries, blue berries, or raspberries could be substituted.
According to the recipe, the key to using fresh berries in home made ice cream is “Macerating,” the berries a half hour prior to making the ice cream. “To macerate” simply sprinkle the berries with sugar and allow them to sit for a half hour before adding them to your ice cream. Doing so allows the berries to release their own juices, lowering moisture content of the berries and keeping the from freezing into icy little pellets in the ice cream. This keeps the berries from for your ice cream relatively whole, unprocessed and lovely to look at (and eat).
