...yours truly! ;)
This "ice cream" would probably be considered more of a sherbet... I was looking for an easy recipe but didn't find one to my liking so I kind of just winged it. I didn't use as much cream and there was a good amount of liquid from the macerated strawberries. But it was creamy enough for me...so knowing that, here's the "recipe":
Strawberry Ice Cream
Yield: 4 servings
1 lb. strawberries, hulled and roughly chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups half and half
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a non-aluminum bowl, toss the strawberries with lemon juice and sugar. Cover and refrigerate to macerate overnight.
In a blender, combine macerated strawberries, half-half, 1/2 cup sugar and vanilla extract and pulse until smooth. Pour into bowl of ice cream maker and churn for 15-20 minutes, according to manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy immediately or store in plastic container to freeze for 3 hours. If frozen for more than 3 hours, leave container out for a few minutes to soften before scooping.
PS - Please excuse my unkempt nails in the photo above... I probably should have gotten a manicure before taking a photo like this but to be honest, I don't really like getting manicures - they always end up hurting me! Now pedicures on the other hand... ;)
