Baughers Restaurant,Westminster,Md. Black Raspberry Ice Cream and Fried Chicken
I made a black raspberry ice cream last year from freshly picked berries. I found them to be bland and somewhat flavorless. The ice cream was that way, too.
The best black raspberry ice cream we ever had was the year I (a) pickd the berries at a Mennonite farm; (b) took them home, cleaned and sorted them; (c) strained them; and (d) made them into ice cream in my little Cuisinart machine, using a recipe from Williams Sonoma’s ice cream/sorbet book. The resulting product was a deep purple, creamy treat that was devoured in about five minutes by four hungry people. Admittedly it was a bit of trouble but worth every luscious bite.
I was in the liquor store recently and thought I would buy some blackberry brandy. Before I found it I saw Creme de Mure on sale. It is a French blackberry liqueur. When I got it home and tasted it I found that it tasted just like Dairy Queen’s Black Raspberry milkshakes. So tonight I bought some ice cream and made myself a Creme de Mure milkshake. Yum!
I miss it too; I lived in Southern New York (Wappingers Falls) until I was about 9, and remember the black raspberry ice cream at Friendly’s.
You might check out the Ben & Jerry’s in Dallas, which may have black raspberry yogurt. It’s not the same, admittedly.
In NYC for getting Black Raspberry it either Turkey Hill or Friendly’s
The best black raspberry ice cream here in Pennsylvania is from Coleman’s on the Old Philadelphia Pike in Lancaster.
Black Raspberry ice cream & yogurt are always in season in Sarasota at Big Olaf Creamery – St Armands.
Customers come from all over the world and enjoy this flavor.
bb-you will NOT be disappointed!! I can honestly say I’m not crazy about ice cream or frozen custard but I would go out of my way to get their black raspberry. It’s THAT GOOD!
I know Hank’s very well. Besides the excellent frozen custard, they are also known for their Mexican food. I don’t particularly remember getting the black raspberry, though. If it is as good as you say, I will have to make it over there next week.
Black raspberry was always my (and my mom’s) favorite. There was a place in New Brighton, PA called Hank’s that had the BEST black raspberry frozen custard!
I remember replying about this someplace else – maybe on here someplace – but black raspberry touches a certain beautiful place in my childhood memories. It’s actually the very first flavor I remember eating in my life! I grew up in Philadelphia, and I echo that it was very common to find that flavor. It remains my lifelong favorite, even above chocolate.
Black raspberry milkshakes are very popular in the Midwest.
Turkey Hill black raspberry is great. The Jigger Shop in Mt. Gretna has it by the dip most of the summer.
It’s common in ice cream parlors in the Philadelphia area; maybe a little less so in stores. Although I suppose most decent supermarkets would have Turkey Hill black raspberry.
