Set a fine mesh strainer over a small bowl. Pour the blueberry sauce through the strainer. Use the back of a wooden spoon to press on the blueberry solids, pushing them through the strainer. Do this until the only thing left in the strainer are the blueberry skins and the lemon rinds. Discard the solids. Cover and refrigerate the blueberry puree.

Bring the Heavy Cream (1 1/2 cups) to a simmer in a heavy medium-sized saucepan. When cream is hot, slowly whisk it into the egg yolks -- adding the cream a little at a time so that the eggs don't heat too quickly and scramble.

step 12
Scoop out one quarter of the ice cream and add 2-3 tablespoons of blueberry puree. Use a spatula to fold the puree into the ice cream. One or two turns with the spatula is all you want -- so you get pretty swirls. If you work it too much -- the whole thing will turn purple.
