STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM


I did something bad...very bad. I bought an ice cream maker. As many of you know ice cream is my kryptonite. I completely justified the purchase after reading the ingredients in what I thought was "healthy" ice cream. I was wrong. So I figured if I am going to indulge in ice cream, I at least want to know what the ingredients are.

Last month strawberries were ripe for the picking everywhere. We found a favorite patch about a thirty minute beautiful drive away...
                     
Corn fields with storm clouds rolling in...
                           

In the patch...I think my fingers were stained red for about two weeks!


Strawberry Ice Cream
Adapted from Epicurious
Makes 1 1/2 quarts

1 pound strawberries trimmed, halved if large

3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream

* Ice Cream Maker

 
Coarsely mash strawberries with sugar and salt using a potato masher in a large bowl. Let stand, stirring and mashing occasionally, 10 minutes.

Transfer half of strawberry mixture to a blender and purée with cream until smooth. Return strawberry cream to bowl with remaining strawberries and chill, stirring occasionally, until very cold, 3 to 6 hours.

Freeze mixture in ice cream maker. Transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to firm up. Fresh mint tastes delicious when served on the ice cream.






Did you see the Super Moon last month? Absolutely beautiful.
