- 1 quart heavy whipping cream or half and half, very cold (cream is best, half and half is slightly better for you)
- ¼ gallon of whole milk, 2% or 1%, very cold (depending on how many calories you want, whole milk is best)
- 1-1/2 cups washed mulberries, best if frozen when put into the cream, lightly crushed or mashed up a bit. It’s okay to leave the stems on. They are edible and you won’t note them in the ice cream.
- 1 cup sugar
- ½ tsp. vanilla
Put cream and milk into the barrel of the ice cream maker, add sugar and mix slowly until the sugar is dissolved. Don’t go too fast or wait too long, or you will end up with sweet butter. Add in the vanilla , stir again. Add in the mulberries and mix up again. Large chunks will float, but as the ice cream churns the berries will be mixed throughout.
Follow the directions on your ice cream maker and enjoy!
