Another weekend over and another weekend closer to Fall. Even though I’m super excited for all things Fall, as previously mentioned, I’m kind of suddenly in this weird place where I’m sad to see Summer go too. Labor Day usually marks the end of Summer, the last hurrah even. But not really for us because Wednesday marks the start of the new school year. Never in my life did we stat prior to Labor Day so this is super weird. It makes total sense living where we do though. You have to finish school by a specific date and have a certain number of school days. If you have too many snow days you run the risk of canceling vacations or *gasp* even going to school later in the day or on the weekends. It’s never come to that, but it’s been discussed over the years.

I look at it all like this… Winter brings Spring, which makes us happy because it’s warmer and sunnier. Days are getting longer. Then comes Summer which is obviously a good thing. I love the transition to cooler Fall days, crisp nights, colorful foliage and ripe apples but then comes Winter. It’s a downward spiral. Lauren mentioned the other day that days are getting shorter. I had somehow pushed that out of my mind. It’s one of the many things food bloggers dread most. Dark by dinner – no thanks.

Since we’re talking last hurrah’s of Summer… this ice cream is definitely one of them. Maybe you can’t find black raspberries in your area now or even at all. I looked and couldn’t find any so I switched things up using something that can easily be found… jam. Yup, black raspberry jam is the star of this easy ice cream recipe. It’s not quite like the ice cream I remember sharing with my dad or even buying from the store on occasion now, but it’s a nice stand-in when I can’t have the real deal.

A refreshing black raspberry ice cream is just what you need to wish Summer farewell and welcome Fall.
