Blackberry Ice Cream with Anise is a favorite summertime combination. This ultra creamy blackberry ice cream has a surprise hint of anise flavor in the background to make the fresh berries pop!
Over the years my family has progressed in our ice cream making endeavors. We started out having the kids shake the ice cream mixture by hand, double bagged with rock-salt. Moms with high energy kids, this is a great way to wear them out!
Then we moved to an old fashioned ice cream churner, that required piles of salt and ice, and was cranked by hand.
Next we tried an automatic ice cream maker with a freezer bowl and soft-serve dispenser. That turned out to be more of a gimmick than anything else.
Finally, we settled on a standard electric ice cream machine with a freezer bowl and a strong motor.
Once you start experimenting with homemade ice cream, you can’t stop. The texture and freshness of homemade ice cream simply can’t be beat.
Plus you have the ability to blend unique flavors you can’t find in the freezer aisle.
This summer, do yourself a favor and buy an ice cream machine. Your family will thank you!
Today I offer you fresh Blackberry Ice Cream with Anise. This blackberry ice cream with a hint of anise is smooth and surprising. A offers a deep licorice note and tart berries speckled throughout.
Most people say they either love or hate licorice flavor. I personally do not care for black licorice, but love licorice tea, shaved fennel salad, and countless other dishes seasoned with anise flavor.
Even if you think you don’t like the licorice flavor associated with anise, I challenge you to try this Blackberry Ice Cream with Anise. I served my Blackberry Ice Cream with Anise at dinner party, to several hardcore licorice-haters, and they gobbled it down without an ounce of hesitation. In fact, a couple of them even asked for seconds!
The touch of anise extract in this berry ice cream provides an airy quality, and pushes the bright ripe blackberries to the forefront.
This, my friends, is the taste of summer. A truly magical combination!
