To say it was a beautiful day would not begin to explain it. It was that day when the end of summer intersects perfectly with the start of fall. — Ann Patchett

Blueberry & Lemon Ice Cream | conifères & feuillusHere in Montréal, blueberry season signals the approach of the end of summer. Although there are still many more warm weeks ahead, the slightest bit of heed will reveal that all of nature has already begun conspiring to bid farewell to summer. What better way to celebrate than with blueberry ice cream?

  1. Oh, that ice-cream looks absolutely divine – a perfect treat for a hot day. So I might have to try your recipe as it’s currently sweltering hot weather here in Australia!
    I love your photography too – it’s stunning!

  2. blueberries always signal the beginning of the end of summer for me too. i think that association comes from the time i spent in alaska, where the berries ripened late summer and the bears would gorge themselves before hibernation. this ice cream looks like something i could gorge myself on before a northern winter!

    1. I imagine these blueberries liken those of the wild blueberries on Québec, they are so sweet and bursting with flavour! I hope you get a chance to make the recipe.

  3. Looks super delicious ! It is so nice to make ice cream using fresh fruits at home, as store-bought ice cream is usually added with synthetic flavour & colour.
