A very soupy Tuesday With Dorie: Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

Dear Dorie:

I really tried to make you a part of my life this week. My ice cream maker was still at my boyfriend's house (new readers: we lived together until this May when I left town for a 16 month internship over 200km away), so I asked him to bring it to me this weekend. But we were leaving for a wedding, Dorie, so I couldn't make the ice cream on the weekend after all.

I thought it would be ok. I thought I could make your delicious-sounding Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream on Monday after work, instead. And I did Dorie, I really did. You have to believe me. But then there was one teensy, tiny mistake that I made: I forgot to freeze the ice cream maker's canister. Yep. And I only realized it after I made the custard.

Oh, and Dorie? It gets worse: I couldn't even take good pictures of the custardy mess I made because my boyfriend's leaving for Italy for two weeks, and he needed his camera back to take great pictures of his vacation and the food he eats abroad (that bit is on my behalf, of course). But I used my crappy Canon PowerShot anyway, and I promise I'll freeze the custard and post the pictures of actual ice cream next week, ok?

In the mean time, you can visit Dolores, who chose this week's selection, and the rest of the lovely Tuesdays With Dorie bakers.

Lots of love and a million apologies,

I'm sure it will keep and you will end up with good ice cream later.

I don't know; I kind of like the picture of the sour cream and blueberry "deconstructed". Toss the custard in the 'fridge until your ice cream maker freezes; it'll be fine.

I liked the post! I am sure the ice cream will come out great keep it in the fridge for a day.

I am giggling over your post...so cute and fun. Each week when I check the blogs, I marvel at everyone's little mini-dramas and it makes everyone seem like a big family...so nice. You definitely sound like someone who belongs in my family, just rolling with the punches as they happen. Thanks for sharing!

oh well! it'll wait, and then while your boyfriend is in italy, you can eat all the ice cream yourself. :)

Too funny - I always find that I'm short some necessary thing when making things at my boyfriend's apartment. PS - IBM? *jealous*

Are we related? ;)

Great post! When you get the ice cream made, I am sure you will enjoy it!

Oh! That's happened to me before too! Next time just put a piece of saran wrap right over the custard (down the insides of the bowl so that it rests directly on the custard, thereby preventing skin from forming) and put the custard in the fridge until the next morning. Then you can churn it once your ice cream canister is frozen. :)

Bummer about the container not being ready. Well I hope you love it as much as I did.

So funny! That 'soup' looks mighty tasty...
