Strawberry Ice Cream

28 Jun


I got a pint of the most awesome strawberries ever courtesy of HighCross Farm.  The weather has been unbearably hot on Wisconsin.  I thought some ice cream would be appropriate. 

I found this recipe here.  I liked this recipe because you use two eggs.  That’s it.  Not the typical 8 egg yolk recipe traditional ice cream bases call for.

This recipe makes lighter in fat, lighter in texture ice cream.  I think you will be pleased when you make this.  I used my kitchenaid ice cream attachment to make this.  You can use any ice cream maker, or no ice cream maker at all.

Strawberry Ice Cream

sweet cream base
2 large eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream (or whipping cream)
1 cup milk

1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
1/3 cup sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon
zest from 1 lemon (optional)

Combine strawberries, lemon juice/zest, and 1/3 cup sugar. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Once strawberries have refrigerated, prepare the sweet cream base. Whisk eggs in a bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in the sugar and continue whisking for a minute longer. Add the cream and milk, stir until fully combined.

Combine the strawberry mixture into the sweet cream base. Pour into an ice-cream mixer and mix according to mixer instructions.

I didn’t get a dark pink colored ice cream typical of most store bought strawberry ice creams.  What I got was this luscious very very pale pink ice cream with wonderful chunks of fresh strawberries.  Incredible. 

Close up…
