Servings: 4 people
Cost: 2


  • Ice Cream Maker


  • 8 Spicebush Berries sliced in half
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • A Dash of Salt


  • First, gather the red, spiceberries. Don't eat them plain! They are used as a spice . . . which means they are spicy. Okay, fine. You can nibble a teensy bit to test it out. But, bring the rest home. Eight berries will do for this recipe, but any extras you can lay out on a tray to dry.
  • Slice each berry in half.
  • Simmer berries in 1 cup of whole milk for 30 minutes.
  • Strain milk and berries through a sieve.
  • Mix with 2 cups of cream (whipping cream) with the spicebush milk. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix until the sugar dissolves.
  • Put in your fridge for 1 hour.
  • Put in your ice cream maker and follow the directions that came with it.
  • Enjoy!
