Yesterday I made some strawberry ice cream from the Ben and Jerry’s ice cream book, and it was amazingly delicious. I’m not really a fan of strawberry ice cream, but this one was out of this world. I’m sure part of the reason was that I used fresh strawberries bought that same day at the farmers’ market. Definitely use fresh strawberries if you can.
Strawberry Ice Cream
In a small bowl, mix the strawberries with the sugar and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Mash the strawberries to a puree and set aside.
In a medium-size bowl whisk the eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk in the sugar, a little at the time, until fully blended. Add the cream and milk and whisk to blend.
Stir the strawberries into the cream.
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
