I tried this recipe out last night and it went over quite well.
- 1 1/2 c milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 1/2 c sugar (divided in half)
- 1 1/4 c heavy cream
- 1 pint blackberries
- juice from 1/2 lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Stir together blackberries, 3/4 c sugar, and lemon juice in large bowl. Cover bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Heat the milk in the bowl of a double-broiler. Brink milk to just simmering.
While milk is heating, whisk the eggs, yolks, and remaining 3/4 cup sugar in a large bowl. Whist 1/4 a cup of the hot milk into the egg and sugar mixture. Pour egg mixture into the milk on the double-broiler and cook while stirring constantly. Heat until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Once mixture thickens, pour back into mixing bowl and stir in heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate until cool.
When the mixtures are ready, stir the blackberry mixture into the cream mixture. Pour into your ice cream maker and mix according to your maker’s directions.
