I'm not a huge ice cream fan, but sometimes I have clients ask for it so when I got a chance to buy a factory-rebuilt Cuisinart ice cream maker for $20 I jumped at the chance. I'm still learning the ins and outs of ice cream making, but I was pleased with this recipe. Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits (along with being, supposedly, a particularly healthy fruit) and this simple preparation is rich and luscious. Coriander has a particular affinity to blueberries, so I highly recommend including it. (Larger image.)Makes 1 quart.

  • 1/2 cup sugar

Great recipe! I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream. I also strained the mash when it cooled and only added back 1/3 of the pulp before refrigerating. The result was light and flavorful without too much seeds/skins. I would definately do this recipe again!
