Huckleberry Ice Cream

Posted September 12, 2014 By sandy

Nothing beats a cold smooth bowl of ice cream on a hot summer day — and, of course, if it is huckleberry ice, it is even better.

I found this Huckleberry Ice Cream recipe — with just a hint of lavender — and just had to share it.  Recipe is from Beth Shephard and posted on her Wanderlust and Lipstick blog:

Huckleberry Ice Cream

Huckleberry  Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon culinary lavender
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup huckleberries

Instructions

  1. Heat the heavy cream, milk, and lavender buds in a medium saucepan, until it begins to bubble.
  2. Remove pan from heat, cover, and let the lavender steep for 30 minutes. Pour the mixture through a strainer to remove the lavender.
  3. Return the milk to the saucepan and heat until it almost reaches a boil.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until they become thick and pale. Slowly add the hot milk to the eggs, whisking constantly.
  5. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, continuously stirring until the mixture coats the back of the spoon (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat, pour the mixture through a strainer, and cool completely (either in the refrigerator in in a prepared ice bath). Stir in the vanilla, and fold in the huckleberries.
  6. Process in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions and store in freezer for up to one week.

Huckleberry Pudding

Posted August 14, 2010 By sandy

casey/artandcolour: What’s a Huckleberry (pudding)?

By casey/artandcolour
I was specifically looking for an original pie crust recipe, and it was adjacent to Huckleberry Pudding, Pumpkin Pie and Spice Cakes. I have no idea what Huckleberries are, except for what I found at Wikipedia below. From what it says,

Huckleberry Pudding
3 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 Tbs butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp B. powder
little salt
2 cups berries
Steam 1 hour. 
(Edit: Would ‘steaming’ be the same as pouring water around a custard pan as it cooks? I’m not familiar with ‘steaming’ anything but vegetables…)

Huckleberry Strawberry Peach Sorbet

Loving Local Food » Blog Archive » Huckleberry Strawberry Peach Sorbet

By Lacey
Ripe strawberries, fresh peaches, and Northwest huckleberries blended and frozen – couldn’t ask for a more refreshing dessert. My husband and I bought a hand-me-down ice cream maker at a club auction over three years ago and it hasn’t

Huckleberry Strawberry Peach Sorbet

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups of sliced strawberries
1 1/2 cups of frozen (or fresh) huckleberries
2 medium sized peaches, peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 pinch of salt
Mint sprigs (optional)
Champagne or sparkling wine (optional)

In a small metal bowl, mix strawberries, huckleberries, and sugar. Let sit, covered for one hour, stirring occasionally until the berries begin to release juices. Blend together strawberries and huckleberries with their juices, peaches, lemon juice, and salt. Puree until smooth and silky. At this point you can use an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

If you do not have an ice cream maker, place mixture in a metal bowl and chill for one hour. Then fold the mixture with a spatula for a few minutes and place in freezer. Every five minutes, remove, break up the ice crystal and fold for two to three minutes, then return to the freezer. Continue processing this way until a smooth and soft, but rigid texture is achieved. Scoop into bowls and if desired, serve with a sprig of mint. You may also serve in martini-style or similar glasses and pour Champagne or sparkling wine over the top. Makes 4 single scoop servings.
