Tuesdays With Dorie – Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

by Jessica on August 12, 2008


For this week’s TWD pick, Dolores of Chronicles in Culinary Curiosity chose Blueberry Sour Cream Ice Cream. I’m not gonna lie. It wasn’t one of my favorites… but, the more I tasted it, the more it grew on me. The sour cream taste came across as pretty bold, though. Maybe I should’ve added more sugar? Who knows? I’d love to try it again, possibly with a different fruit (like raspberry) and less sour cream, of course. 🙂 Amy suggested to try it with homemade fudge sauce on top. Oh, how I would’ve loved some of that! Unfortunately, I’m trying to slim down a little bit for an upcoming wedding that I’m in…. plus, I just didn’t flat out have the time!! Next time for sure!


*Note to self: When trying to open a cabinet door in your 1980s kitchen, don’t leave your immersion blender standing up in whatever you’ve just blended.

The color is just beautiful! Looks very tasty. I want to try other fruits as well next time!

Ha, I love the mess. It makes me feel like I’m not alone.


3 Lori August 12, 2008 at 5:11 am

haha!! That is TOTALLY something I’d do. It still looks great, of course, and you’d have to clean the kitchen anyway….

Ack! Sorry about your blender mishap. I had one too so don’t feel bad! 🙂

Oopsie! Although your ice cream looks great – especially the color! (BTW, your canisters are adorable!!)


6 BMK August 12, 2008 at 9:28 am

I’ve made messes like that before! The ice cream looks beautiful. I think chocolate makes everything taste good!


7 Amy (Sing for your supper) August 12, 2008 at 11:50 am

HAHAHA! You know ,I think this recipe must carry a curse with it…I made a huge stinking mess too when I made it before! 🙂 Anyway, it looks great, Jess! Even though you didn’t care for it, the color and the pictures are perfect!
Obviously I didn’t quite get mine made in time….oh well, I’ll be back next week for sure! 🙂

oooOOOoooo You have the Longaberger canisters.

My husband works for Longaberger.

I struggled to make this one too, but it was phenomenal! I used only ½ c. sour cream and a whole cup of heavy cream.

BAHAHAHA. Omg I am cackling at that last picture. I am sure it wasn’t funny at the time but it really gave me the giggles! Your ice cream is such a vibrant color. Great job!

Beautiful color on your ice cream! I think the raspberry combination sounds really good…might need to try that soon before they become outrageously expensive. Love the Baskets!


12 Mara August 12, 2008 at 4:07 pm

oooh look at that luscious color, i love it!!! and omg opening the cabinet door sounds like something i would do. i am SO clumsy. fab job!

Sorry to have laughed, but…….. my blueberries smashed all over the floor. Couldn’t get pictures because dogs were chasing them trying to eat them. And that’s a mess we don’t want to see.

I also tried adding more sugar and some vanilla, but it just was so sour-y.

that sucks about the blender. That is total me the other day I got cocoa powder all over my face and up my nose. Your ice cream looks great 🙂


15 Caitlin August 12, 2008 at 6:22 pm

Love the note to self – I’ve done that so many times with whisks! Lovely color.


16 Erin August 12, 2008 at 9:18 pm

Your ice cream looks great! I bet raspberry would be great with this!


17 Rebecca August 12, 2008 at 10:12 pm

So glad I’m not the only one who occasionally tips the old immersion blender. Gorgeous ice cream!


18 Tom Aarons August 13, 2008 at 5:24 am

Love the psychedelic color!


19 Esther August 13, 2008 at 7:28 am

Such a pretty color!


20 pamela August 13, 2008 at 8:31 am

I never thought of tossing fudge sauce on top, but it does sound great. Chocolate is a cure all, right? ;o)


21 mari August 13, 2008 at 8:39 am

The blender mishap, is just so something I’d do!


22 Sihan August 13, 2008 at 9:24 am

oh gosh.. another clutz in the kitchen.. just like me. on a side note, the colors are gorgeous! almost like a purple yam icecream! *Drools*


23 Jaime August 13, 2008 at 8:37 pm

you got a very beautiful color! maybe more sugar next time would make it better for you?… but mine tasted perfect to me 🙂


24 Jules August 13, 2008 at 10:49 pm

I never got into the sour cream taste. Glad you liked it.


25 Erin August 14, 2008 at 2:42 pm

I want it all, your bowl, your spoon, your ice cream.


26 Nancy/n.o.e August 14, 2008 at 9:35 pm

I love the way your ice cream looks so crisp in that green bowl. You’ll know what changes to make for your next batch…


27 Dolores August 15, 2008 at 12:39 am

Glad to see I’m not the only one who makes a colossal mess of my kitchen with Dorie’s recipes. 🙂
