Roasted Blueberry Ice Cream with Balsamic and Goat Cheese - ButterYum

I have to give full credit to my oldest daughter, ButterYum Jr, for making this amazing ice cream after finding the recipe by Kayley on a wonderful blog called Kitchen McCabe.  Roasting the blueberries with really good quality balsamic vinegar intensifies their flavor and adding goat cheese gives the ice cream a tangy quality and satisfying chewy texture.  It's brilliant.
