Vanilla Ice Cream with Rye Crisp & Blackberry Sauce

Vanilla Ice Cream with Rye Crisps & Blackberry Sauce

And here we are- the dessert from my Nordic Supper event which you can read more about here.

This ice cream dessert has it all- sweetnes from the ice cream, the crunch from the rye crisps and the warmth and tartyness from the blackberry sauce. It’s even topped off with a drizzle of Dulse, the amazing candylike seaweed!

When creating a supper I try and think about how I can reuse products during the dinner. When I prepeared the beer battered rye crisps, I decided to make one tray sweeter- to use on the dessert. Every meal should have a contrast to each other, so a touch of crispyness on a sweet, creamy ice cream is a perfect match.

It’s a celebration of the summer that has been and a welcome to the autumn that’s coming.

I had one thought in mind when choosing this dessert- I wanted it to be incredibly tasty, and what is tastier than a creamy vanilla ice cream covered in a warm blackberry sauce?

To make it you need an ice cream machine, but don’t worry- if you don’t own it you can simply go out and buy a good quality ice cream from a trusted brand. When buying, I like to consider where the products come from- is it organic and how is the animal welfare? This is something everyone should consider.
