I got an ice cream maker long ago and I’ve been dying for it to get warm enough to start making my own ice cream. I actually found a recipe book that has savory flavors of sorbet and sweet ice cream flavors. I remember as a child my Grandfather would make the best strawberry ice cream with huge pieces of frozen strawberries.
Strawberries are now in season so it’s a great time to make a few quarts of ice cream and save them in the freezer and that’s exactly what I did! I used all organic ingredients but you could use anything you like.
Fresh Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream Ingredients:
3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar, divided
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In large mixing bowl beat eggs until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually add 3/4 cups sugar, mixing well. Stir in milk and vanilla and mix well. Add strawberries. Gently stir in whipping cream.
My ice cream maker suggest I let it run for 20-40 minutes. Mine took about 40 minutes and then I placed the whole thing in the freezer.
In the end we had perfect strawberry ice cream. Just like the ice cream my Grandfather used to make with plenty of berries!
