Why did my ice cream fail?

lestblight | Mar 7, 2011 02:16 PM

Can anyone explain to me why my ice cream failed to be creamy and smooth ?

Used a basice custard recipe.

2 cup cream
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
pinhc of salt
5 eggs.

i had some blueberries and lemons so i decided to make some blueberry lemon icecream.

made lemon ice cream before. and it was great.. creamy and delicious.

I pureed blueberries with some vanilla sugar and then tossed this with my cream.. i wanted some color to the ice cream.

i didnt strain here.. i added directly and planned to strain later.

after that i added a lil vodka and added eggs etc

let it cool off and put it in my ice cream maker.

the result was


not smooth and creamy.. and then after i got a slight fatty taste.

it tasted great otherwise.

the flavor combo was great

but the texture was awful.

anyways.. can anyone explain where i went wrong?

I imagineit was with the blueberry puree? too much water in there?

should i have strained first ?

(i strained after including eggs and letting it thicken)

thank you.
