Author Notes

Adapted from an old Organic Valley recipe, this excellent no-cook ice cream is perfect for summer: Quick and easy, you don't need to turn on the stove, and it highlights summer berries at their peak, with the tang of buttermilk and sour cream to balance it out. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

Review
I like warm homemade bread slathered with fresh raw milk butter, ice cream in all seasons, the smell of garlic in olive oil, and sugar snap peas fresh off the vine.
