In my previous blog post I made some simple yet tasty HomeMade Blackberry Jam and had a small container of leftover jam that I decide to make homemade ice cream!
Know the Difference?
- Sorbet — contains no dairy; is very light in flavor
- Sherbet — contains fruit, but also dairy and is lighter than ice cream
- Frozen Yogurt — Contains dairy that has been cultured; resembles soft ice cream
- Ice Cream — Must have at least 10% milk fat; may or may not contain eggs
- Gelato — Ice cream with a mix of milk and sometimes cream, and eggs; boasts a dense texture.
Homemade Blackberry Jam Ice Cream
- Fruit jam
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
In a medium bowl, combine milk and sugar. Stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved. Then, pour in the cream and egg and stir until combined. Pour the mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and churn for 10-15 minutes, when the ice cream begins to freeze and thicken. Dump your fruit jam (any flavor will do!) right into the ice cream while it churns. Continue to let it mix for another 10 minutes or so. After that I just shaved a bit of white chocolate on top!
You can also use this to make a sherbet.
Homemade Blackberry Jam Sherbet
- fruit jam
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 1 cup cream
I mixed all the ingredients in my Ninja Blender and placed the mixture into a container in the freezer overnight. I just scooped out the sherbet and added a bit of more jam.
Fun Weekend Activity!!
Just a side note I did not feel like putting this in a separate post and just another cool way to show you all how I used my leftover blackberry jam! Decided to make jam filled white chocolate snowmen and snowflakes.
SUPER SIMPLE AND FUN TO DO WITH KIDS! Take any mould and add thin layer of chocolate to coat the base (make sure entire base is covered in chocolate). FRREZE FOR 5 MINUTES. Then add a bit of jam and cover again with melted chocolate. FREEZE FOR 10 MINUTES. And that’s basically it. There you have your jam filled white chocolate :)
