Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

My adventures with the ice cream make continue. *A* suggested that I either make a strawberry or a peach ice cream since they are in season and all. We did our version of a coin flip and came up with strawberry. So here is the recipe it really did turn out to be delicious.

The recipe is from "Ice Creams & Sorbets" By Lou Seibert Pappas

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 and 1/4 lb, fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/2 cup half and half or milk (I used half n half)
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar divided
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • On a water bath heat the cream and half n half over simmering water until steaming.
  • In a bowl beat the egg yolks until blended, then whisk in 1/2 cup of the sugar.
  • Whisk in about half the hot cream, keep mixing thru this process.
  • Gently pour the entire yolk mix in to the remaining cream while stirring.
  • Stir and cook over simmering water until the custard coats the back of a spoon (abt 10 mins).
  • Immediately place the custard pan in an ice bath and still occasionally till it gets to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile in a bowl mash the strawberries, sprinkle with a remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the lime juice and allow to stand until the sugar dissolves. Stir in to the custard and transfer to a container.
  • Chill for about the 3 hours.
  • Pour into the ice cream machine (following your manufacturer's instructions).
  • I left it in for about 6 hours in the freezer in the ice cream bowl, before transferring it to a regular container.

This really turned out well. *A* approves. I think the fresh strawberries made all the difference. Also none of the chemicals and other stabilizers and all that stuff commercially available ice cream has.


A New Way To Move Beer?

Ummm yummy. Strawberry has always been my fav flavor. Always. Although sometimes I pick mint choc chip over it. But its an all time fav.

How would one drink a bag of beer? I mean, is it like doing a beer chug, where you poke a hole in the side and then drinkdrinkdrink until it's gone? Maybe a long straw you stick in the top? Now if they only put a live goldfish in there, now THAT would be something!
