We all scream for ICE CREAM – Weekly Blog Giveaway

49 Comments | Written on September 5, 2011 at 5:00 am , by

It’s blog giveaway time!  This week I wanted to offer up a way to savor the flavors of summer all year long with this fantastic “Homemade Ice Cream” prize package.  Simply by leaving a comment below you will be entered to win:

-Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

-Ice Cream Scoop

-2 Ice Cream Cone Bowls

-2 Ice Cream Cone Spoons

One lucky winner will be randomly selected on Sunday night.  Don’t forget there is a new chance to win and a new prize package every week!

Official Rules

I can’t tantalize you with this amazing prize package and not offer up a great recipe to go along with it!  That just wouldn’t be fair!

This recipe is so easy and it can be made with homemade or store bought vanilla ice cream.  I think it is great for dinner parties because the blackberries can be prepared in advance, covered and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Here is what you will need:

-Ruby Port Wine


-Superfine Sugar

-Vanilla Ice Cream

Blackberries in Port (click here to view and print recipe)

1 1/4 cups ruby port

6 Tablespoons superfine sugar

4 cups blackberries

Pour the port into a pan, add the sugar, and 2/3 cup water.  Stir over a gentle heat with a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved.  Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the blackberries.  Set aside to cool, then pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Chill until ready to serve.

Serves 6.

    My favorite ice cream flavor is Motor Oil. It’s made by a local Dairy Farm called Woodside Creamery. The base is coffee ice cream. It has ribbons of fudge and caramel running through it. Where the fudge and caramel intersect the color looks like the kind of green you would have on a garage floor when you are working on a car. It taste’s delicious and I love telling people my favorite flavor and watching their faces. It is usually a look between bewildered and disgust. LOL!
