What to do to use up the last of some buttermilk…
Let’s make ice cream! Blueberries, buttermilk, crushed Lorna Doone shortbread cookies, plus a few more ingredients combined into my wonderful ice cream maker – and poof, I have a fun new ice cream flavor to try out.
- 1 pound blueberries (if frozen, thaw)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups buttermilk
- handful shortbread cookies (such as Lorna Doone, around 10), crushed
Puree blueberries with sugar, brown sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the buttermilk.
Transfer to the container of an ice cream machine and process according to the manufacturer's directions. At about 10-15min, as the ice cream begins to firm up, sprinkle the crushed shortbread cookies and complete the ice cream for a few more minutes. Pack the ice cream into an airtight container, cover and freeze for at least 2 hours to allow the ice cream to harden before serving.
