It's nearly Christmas and here we are making ice cream for TWD.
Normally, in southern California, it's warm and sunny, even in December. At the moment, however, it's cool, cloudy, and rainy. That's some of my favorite weather, but it's not exactly conducive for ice cream.
Luckily, I love ice cream, no matter what time of year it is.
This recipe is chocolate ice cream with a twist. At the very end of the freezing cycle, you throw in some blueberry preserves. Mostly, the blueberries disappear. Occasionally, however, a lump of preserves pops up for a sweet and fruity surprise. The photos really do show some of the blueberries, even though the color contrasts aren't evident. I can see them. Can you?
Now, I'm set for chocolate ice cream for a few days.
The ice cream hostess this week was none other than the Tuesdays with Dorie instigator, Laurie. Glad to see her smiling, chocolate-y face once again! Laurie has the recipe posted on her blog.
In less than two weeks, we'll be finished with this cookbook. I have a few more recipes remaining, so stay tuned.
