Blueberry Gelato

This recipe could be called ice cream, but since it contains no eggs, it more closely resembles Italian gelato. Whatever you choose to call it, it's delicious!

When you can, use fresh wild blueberries; otherwise, cultivated or frozen berries will also work. 

Note: the times noted for this recipe don't include ice cream maker processing or freezing time.

 

Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 10 min | Total time: 20 min | 10 Servings

Ingredients

2 ½ cups

Earthbound Farm Fresh Organic Blueberries or Frozen Organic Blueberries (picked over)

¾ cup

Sugar

pinch

salt

2 tsp

fresh lemon juice

grated zest of 1 lemon

1 cup

whole milk

1 ½ cups

heavy (whipping) cream (chilled)

Directions

Combine the blueberries, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the blueberries soften, about 5 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and purée. Alternately, you can put the mixture through a food mill. Stir in the lemon juice and lemon zest, then chill the fruit purée until it's completely cold.

Just before you make the gelato, add the milk and cream to the blueberry purée. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's instructions. Place the gelato in an airtight container and press a piece of plastic wrap against the top surface to prevent ice crystals from forming. Cover the container with a lid and freeze for up to 1 week.
