Wild Blueberry Ice Cream

I had some blueberries left from blueberry picking and wanted to do something fun with it. Abe loves ice cream so I made this for him and ended up loving it myself which is not good because I want to eat it all. Enjoy!!!

1 pint wild blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 cup milk

1. Toss the blueberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and lemon juice together in a mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

2. In another mixing bowl whisk the eggs until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the 3/4 cup sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend.

3. Drain the juice from the blueberries into the cream base and blend. Mash the blueberries until pureed and stir into the cream base.

4. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.
