Original Recipe by Ralph Marrone, Strawberry Ice Cream.

This recipe originally came from a recipe that Linda shared which is one of Raph’s specialties. In this recipe, we switch out strawberries for blackberries, which are delicious this time of year.


2 cups whole milk (I like Sand Hill Dairy from Fallon available from Centro Market)

2 cups heavy cream

1 1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cup fresh pureed blackberries


Bring milk and cream just to a boiling point, remove from heat and add 3/4 cup sugar, stir to dissolve. Cool.

Puree the blackberries in a food processor until liquified, add the rest of the sugar. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the milk mixture. Taste for sweetness and process in an ice cream maker, then add to a container and freeze.
