Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

I decided now was the time to have a go at strawberry. When I’m making a new flavor, unless I’m following an exact recipe from a book, the first thing I do is a little bit of research.

Prep
Cook
Serves 2people
Ingredients
2
cups heavy cream
1
cup whole milk
2/3
cup sugar
1
(1 lb) box strawberries
Directions
1.
Wash and trim the caps off the strawberries. Then cut berries into slices that are approximately 1/4-inch thick. (Or just use and egg slicer.)
2.
Puree 1/2 of the sliced strawberries in a food processor or blender, and set aside.
3.
Combine cream, milk, and sugar in a saucepan and heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
4.
Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. Add in the strawberry puree and mix well.
5.
Cover with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator until completely cool to the touch.
6.
While the custard is chilling, dice the remaining sliced strawberries into smaller pieces to mix in the ice cream.
7.
Freeze the custard in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
8.
Once the ice cream is done freezing mix in the diced strawberries, and pour into an air-tight container.
9.
Freeze for an additional 2 hours.
10.
And here are the instructions of how mine turned out:
11.
Strawberries are all sliced. Ready to puree half of them, and set the other half aside to be mixed in later.
12.
Into the food processor they go! I Have a mini-chop, and I was pleasantly surprised to be able to puree it all in one batch.
13.
The color of this puree is so bright. You could add a bit of lemon juice to this if you wanted too, but I don’t think it needs it.
14.
Make the custard
15.
Now it’s all mixed together and ready to chill for several hours. Break time!
16.
I use the Cuisinart Supreme Commercial Quality Ice Cream Maker so I can freeze multiple batches in a row. It also has a removable bucket that makes pouring the custard in much easier.
17.
Time to start churning!
18.
After approximately 40 minutes in my machine, the ice cream is done freezing.
19.
Time to mix in the other 1/2 of the strawberries. I love having fruit mixed into my ice cream.
20.
And here it is, the final product!
21.
