blueberry ice cream, frozen treat, summer

Summer of 2008 holds a lot of nostalgia for me…having lived in New York for my very first summer at the School of Visual Arts, which was the wildest dream come true for me. There is a first time for everything as you know and that would also be the first summer I tried blueberries and figs. Yes…the very first time in my life, up to that point 27 years of life…I hadn’t lived obviously prior to those 27 years. I felt like living so far from home on my own and left to learn new things from others opened 10 inch Zenker loaf pans up an entirely new world to me, especially in the world of the culinary. So the result for my love for blueberries brings you this fresh, organic, and oh so creamy blueberry dreamy ice cream. It’s super simple to make and will yield about 2 quarts and fits nicely in one of these 10 inch Zenker loaf pans. Have at it today and bring your hot summer day to a close with this fresh and sweet treat!
