Grandma's Tip

Strawberries could also be used in this recipe to make a delicious homemade strawberry ice cream.

1 quart ripe sweet berries. 1 pound sugar. 1 quart fresh cream. Scatter half the sugar over the berries and let them stand three hours. Press and mash them, and strain them through a thin muslin bag.

Add the rest of the sugar, and when dissolved, beat in the cream little by little. Freeze rapidly, opening the freezer, if it is not a patent one, several times to beat and stir.

Or, you may have a pint of whole berries, un-sugared, ready to stir in when the cream is frozen to the consistency of stiff mush. In this case, add a cup more sugar to the quart of crushed berries.

About the Raspberry Flavors

When I was a youngster growing up on our family farm, we would pick the wild raspberries that grew along the fence rows. They were smaller than the tame berries, but what they lacked in size, they made up in natural flavor.

My wife and I still find raspberry canes growing along the rail fence behind our home, and each year we eagerly await the raspberries ripening. They taste awesome in homemade ice cream.

Why not take a leisurely late summer's drive along country roads and look for wild raspberry canes? The wild raspberries make a great ice cream topping too.
