Fresh (or frozen) blackberry Ice cream (Helado de moras y crema)

All my life I have loved  blackberries, absolutely, the marmalades of blackberry (made for my granny) desserts with blackberry, kuchenes with blackberries and of course blackberry ice cream, one of my favorites.
This ice cream can be made with fresh or frozen berries. In fact mine were frozen from the summer and they were delicious.
The recipe can be made with ice cream machine or without no problem.

And if someone wonders why I make so many ice cream in the fall ( anyway I like them all year) my mom loves ice cream is her favorite dessert.

Ingredients

 3   cups fresh (or frozen) blackberries 

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice 
1/2 cup of sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method


Add the blackberries to a blender and pulse until fully pureed.

You want a smooth, juiciy consistency. Press the puree through a fine mesh sieve and discard the pulp.
You should have about 1cups of liquid.
Transfer the liquid to a mediumsaucepan , add the lemon juice and sugar. 
Heat over medium heat until reduced and thickened about 5 minutes, stir occasionally: Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cold.

Add the heavy cream to a large bowl. Using and electric mixer beat until stiff peaks form. Turn the speed to slow and slowly pour in the condensed milk. Add the vanilla extract. Turn the speed back to high and beat until thickened.Transfer to a container  (I use a loaf pan)at least one hour.


Transfer to 2  cups of the whipped cream to other bowl.

Add in the  berry cooled puree and mix until well combined. 
Gently fold into the remaining whipped cream  to create swirls. Dont over mix or you will lose the swirls. 
Freeze at least 4 hours.

Note::
If you have a machine Ice cream you can make the vanilla Ice cream in a cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions. When the cream is done make the swirls with the blackberry syrup and put in the freezer in the freeze container.
