Strawberry Ice Cream


My mom's homemade ice cream is a favorite.  I like that she doesn't use eggs.  She uses all cream and no semi-skimmed milk, which makes the ice cream doubly rich.  But I like the milk and have to make a much smaller batch.  Someday we'll get a big fancy ice cream maker like hers, but for now our little counter top one is fine.

Ingredients

2 cups sugar
1 cup double cream (or whipping cream)
1 cup milk (I used semi skimmed)
1 small can (170 grams) evaporated milk
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cups strawberries, washed and stems removed
View full recipeMix ingredient together in a blender.   Place frozen ice cream machine bowl into machine and start. Slowly pour the mixture into the machine and keep machine stirring until the ice cream resembles fresh whipped cream (½ hour or more). Scrape mixture into a freezer proof container and freeze.

Ohmygosh.
I am so happy you posted this recipe. Now that I think of it, I'm sure she would have given it to me if I had asked, but I hadn't.
The point is, your mom's strawberry ice cream is the best thing that's ever happened to me.
