Strawberry ice cream

Erin made this last night. Oh my mercy, is it good, and it froze very well. We used our strawberries and fresh milk, cream, and eggs from Ruhl’s. (And berries still abound; later today Erin is gonna make jam.)

4 cups strawberries
8 oz sugar, divided
6 egg yolks
1 pint milk
1 pint cream
2 tsp vanilla

Mash the strawberries with about half the sugar. Chill in the freezer.

In a saucepan, mix the eggs, milk, and sugar. Bring almost to a boil, stirring constantly. Don’t let it boil! Pour into a chilled bowl, and chill in the freezer.

When everything is cold, stir the cream and vanilla into the milk/egg mixture, then add the berries. Dump in the ice cream maker, and go.

    That’s funny. I had the same idea yesterday. We bought strawberries at the farmer’s market and I just made the custard a few minutes ago. Now it chills before the churn.

    We’re on the same wavelength.

    And it’s good ice cream weather!

    I saw the recipe in your del.icio.us. I’m interested to hear how it turns out.

    BTW, Erin made the jam while I was at the pool with Madelyn.
