Fresh Fruit For Homemade Ice Cream

There is nothing like using fresh fruit to make your own homemade ice cream and it is one of the reasons why I have developed my own little fruit garden at home. It's taken a few years but the effort is well worth it.

I have planted and grown a wide variety of fruits and used most of them in my ice cream recipes.

My home fruit includes:
  • apples

  • strawberries

  • blueberries

  • raspberries

  • pears

  • plums

  • gooseberries

  • cherries

  • blackcurrants

  • rhubarb

The most popular ice cream recipe in our house using our own homegrown fruit has to be strawberry ice cream followed closely by blueberry ice cream.

However, my recent rhubarb sorbet certainly got the 'thumbs up'.

So on those sultry, hot summer evenings this July, it might just prove the best of all possible homemade ice creams ....

(Please don't let the weather let me down on this one!)
