CtBF – buttermilk ice cream

This is some of the best ice cream I’ve made. Yes, I just said that.

I decided to get a new ice cream maker because a) it was on sale, b) it’s hot in Arizona so ice cream is good, and c) because everyone, but especially my mom, loves ice cream.

I’ve made quite a number of versions, and even bought David’s The Perfect Scoop. His vanilla custard style was actually my favorite. Up until now. There’s anew favorite in town.

It’s easy! Heat some cream with some sugar and a bit of corn syrup to make it creamier. That’s cooled (supposed to be for 8 hours in the refrigerator, but I cheated and did fewer in the freezer).

The tangy flavor of the buttermilk was fabulous. We had it with berries. I think it could be yummy with many other toppings. I’m even thinking maybe some sweet waffles or maple-something. I guess my idea is not fully baked.

But the texture is beautiful, even the next day. I did set it out for a few minutes to barely soften. Worked perfectly!

This was one of my favorites out of the book. Really delicious!!

  1. Everything you say is what I think. This ice cream is something special. I’ve made ice cream from David’s Perfect Scoop and the cherry and the mint is to die for. We also made Dorie’s Olive Oil Ice Cream, remember? But this is the best. I think I like it most because it’s so creamY and doesn’t get hard (thank you, corn syrup). It’s also easy. Next time I make it I am going to add Bourbon, per Joy the Baker’s suggestion. Just FYI, in the mountains we’re chilly in the morning and chilly at 6pm and not very hot during the day. I sorta like hot but I know that your neck of the woods is a bit much. Another wonderful recipe from David.

    1. Now that I think of it, how could I not have added some bourbon? Makes it a little softer. Plus yummy! Great idea!!

      Always a delight to hear from you!!

  2. Those two are really great reasons to get the ice cream maker! Looking good with those strawberries! I have the Perfect Scoop too, but yet to make any recipe from it (I think?)..

  3. Your ice cream looks so nice and smooth, goes perfectly with the berries. This was so simple to make, I would like to experiment with other flavors too.
