Strawberry Ice Cream

Posted in All Sugar All The Time, The Creamery by brandi on April 30, 2009

Strawberry Season is in full swing, so obviously some ice cream is in order.


What more can I say? It was creamy and yummy and tasted like strawberries. Store bought will never be the same.


1 quart fresh strawberries, washed, stemmed and quartered

1 ½ cups granulated sugar

2 cups milk

2 cups cream

1 cup sugar

1/2 vanilla bean, split in half and scraped

6 egg yolks

– Mix the strawberries with ½ cup sugar. Let macerate for 10 minutes.

– Place in pot and cook on medium heat for 6 -7 minutes, until soft and fragrant.

– Puree in a food processor or blender, then strain through a fine sieve.

– In a saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the milk, cream and vanilla bean. Bring just under a boil and let sit.

– Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl.

– Slowly ladle in hot cream mixture, whisking constantly.

– Once mixed pour back into pot and heat on medium, scraping with a spatula. Keep heating until custard begins to thicken, coating the spatula.

– Remove from the heat and stir in the strawberry puree. Whisk until smooth.

– Pour the mixture into a bowl and cool on an ice bath. Once cool place in fridge and let chill for several hours.

– Pour into an ice cream machine and spin away!

– Once spun, let rest in freezer for 4 hours before serving.
