– Blueberries: They’re not just for pancakes. Like their fellow berries, they can be made into a compote to top a sundae, added to shakes, or just plopped fresh on top of ice cream and are especially nice coupled with lemon flavor.
– Cherries: We think of those bright red maraschino cherries to top ice cream, but fresh summer cherries are a whole different fruit. Bing and Rainier cherries are available from May to August and are relatively sweet. You can look into buying a cherry pitter. They are not expensive and will offer you a way to get the best use of these summer fruits with your frozen custard.
– Corn: Sweet corn can be cooked with cream, milk, and sugar to make a base for the most delicious summer ice cream you can imagine. Corn and milk go well together, and the sugar will bring out the corn’s natural sweetness. Add a little hot fudge or caramel sauce and some chopped almonds or pecans, and you will have one unique dessert.
