Akutaq Recipe - Eskimo Ice Cream
This recipe is a regular in our home! Berries are a staple in the Eskimo diet. While wild berries are only available fresh in late summer, freezers and grocery stores now allow this treat to be eaten year round! Enjoy!
AKUTAQ – Eskimo Ice cream
1/2 Cup vegetable shortening
1 Cup granulated sugar
1 Pound frozen berries
Mix the vegetable shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Then, in a separate bowl, pour the frozen berries and slowly add the sugar and shortening mix until you get the consistency you desire, you may not want to mix all of it in. You can also mix in anything you like with it; a little vanilla, maybe some almond extract. Eat immediately and store leftovers in the fridge or freezer.
