Blackberry Ice Cream

Blackberry Ice Cream
My friend Jacob recently wrote on my Facebook wall: "Less fruit, more chocolate."  He isn't so fond of fruit, and has a particular hate of apples.  I know -- I don't understand him, and I don't think I want to.  Sorry, Jacob, but it's summer!  Crops are ripening, farmers markets are bustling, and all that fruit looks and smells good.

I'm not even big on berry ice creams.  Pure chocolate is my favorite, or vanilla flavored with chocolate.  But this one was wonderfully creamy, and had that great blackberry taste without the pucker you can get from eating the fruit plain.  It even won over Joe, who prefers coffee or peanut butter cup ice creams.  Maybe you could drizzle some fudge sauce on top, Jacob?
