And you know how blueberry lemon muffins are delicious? Now imagine more creamy and refreshing version, and what you have are these blubbery lemon ice cream.

This time it was my two and a half-year old Rose who was helping me making these, and I must tell you, she did enjoy all the mixing and the licking it involved!

So easy, no churn, and only four ingredients, this recipient will Shute be your new summer favourite! #summerfood #nochurn #icecream

Blueberry and wild cherry homemade jam

IMG_20130815_182459IMG_20130815_183146IMG_20130818_205657IMG_20130815_182344

It’s amazing how easy and rewarding it is to make yourself a jam. Usually when I have to many fruits, I decide on preparing a jar of fresh sweetness like this one. And a mix of blueberries with wild cherries is particularly delicious, with a small hint of cheery taste, a perfect addition to breakfast or tea. I never knew wild cherries before, they are less sweet, though with a lovely aroma. But I must admit that it was a bit of Cinderella work to get these tiny seeds out !

1 cup of wild cherries
2 cups of blueberries
1 cup of sugar

Place your washed and gently crushed fruits in the pan, add sugar and heat on high heat for around 30 min. Let it cool and put in a jar. You can keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks. These proportions will give you one medium jar of jam.
