Mixed Berry Jam and Pound Cake

Last weekend I made mixed berry jam using strawberries, blueberries and black raspberries.  I had about 2 1/2 cups of mixed berry puree left, so I froze it.  I also had about 1 cup of strawberry puree left from making no sugar added strawberry jam and I froze that as well.We are having company for dinner tonight so I decided to pull out the fruit puree and make an ice cream to go along with pound cake for dessert.

It turned out better than I hoped, it reminds me so much of my mother’s favorite ice cream, black raspberry, both in color and flavor.  It is supposed to be such a hot and muggy day today so I think the ice cream will be a refreshing change!  Plus our friends have kids so I am sure this will be a big hit with them.

To go along with the ice cream, I made a buttermilk pound cake.  I love pound cake, I am not a huge fan of cakes with icing so pound cake is perfect for me.  I found the recipe for this cake in a church cookbook and it is perfect every time.

Can I just say, I know I have a cookbook obsession but truly church or firehouse cookbooks are awesome.  You know these are recipes that everyday cooks make for their families, pick a few up, they are worth your time and investment.
