Blackberry Ripple Gelato

This blackberry ripple gelato is a cheat’s version of making ice cream. It involves only a few ingredients, very little time, and no churning. The hardest part is waiting long enough for it to freeze before eating.

I have a flawed logic circuit. What is obvious to some people takes me quite some time to understand. I just don’t see things the same way other people do. Dave has got quite used to this and will patiently explain things to me. Sometimes over and over again. When he designed the scullery he didn’t realise I couldn’t visualise what it would look like from a 2D diagram. Now when he draws something he transfers it into a 3D image. He has done this with our kitchen, and most recently our pub. This way I’m not surprised by the result. After our last race meeting in Johannesburg he slowly explained how the altitude affects the engine. I have to confess that even though I eventually understood him, I cannot recall if the car is faster or slower at the coast.

He has to be rewarded for being so good with helping me conceptualize things. What I do know is that making this blackberry ripple gelato was quicker than my normal method. It did not require a crème anglaise base. Nor did it need an ice cream churner. I don’t usually make this cheats version but I’m still running against time. I’m enjoying having house guests and eating out, and that leaves very little time for anything else. I served the gelato with our whisky cake on Christmas day. I think both were a hit. Feel free to make any flavour you want as the base is vanilla and the blackberry comes from the jam I used.

  1. Hi Tandy~ Sounds like a fun visit from your parents, how nice! Okay, this blackberry gelato looks stunning. I want it for breakfast! But it’s the simplicity of this recipe that surprises me most. Just a few ingredients, not hard at all.

  2. We all learn differently! Neither my husband nor I could believe that our daughter cannot (to this day) do any kind of math, and never could figure out maps. Now, at least, they don’t have to! Both my husband and I were geologists, and we can automatically see in 3 dimensions. And do math. But there’s a lot we can’t do! Happy New Year! I wish I had the ingredients to make this ice cream, but I’m not going back to the store!!!

  3. I have not been successful at making ice-cream, Tandy. I will give this recipe a try and see how it goes.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
