I got a fantastic ice cream maker at Christmas. Because I had some super great coupons, I only paid $19.99 for it. I have wanted one for a while, so I couldn't pass this up. This is my husbands new favorite flavor.
Blackberry Lemon Ice Cream
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups half and half (I used fat free half and half)
1 tbsp. vanilla
zest of one lemon
1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries (I used frozen ones that I had picked this summer)
In a bowl, mix together the milk, half and half, salt, lemon zest and sugar. Whisk together until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate mixture for at least one hour. Freeze the ice cream according to your ice cream maker's instructions. Add the blackberries to the ice cream during the last 5 mins. of the freezing. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer.
