Blackberry Ice Cream

Serves 10


From Chef Jamie North of Mix in Ashland

Anyone can make ice cream! It's not as hard as you think and you don't need specialized equipment. Just place a mason jar in a large bowl full of ice cubes and hand mix it for the final step. When Oregon blackberries are in season, this is a summer must! The color of this ice cream is truly astonishing.
