After finding the peach ice cream recipe in my Great-Grandmother’s 1913 cookbook and finding it so simple yet delicious, I wanted to try some different variations. This luscious strawberry cream ice cream was the result of my experimenting. I love that no special equipment is needed and it is so fast to make. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruit. I can add them to just about anything and know I will like it. Since I often have cream from my sister’s dairy I was bound to try this combination eventually. The burst of fresh strawberry flavor in each bite with the smooth cream is just amazing.
1. Mash/chop 4 cups of strawberries into small chunks.
2. Mix with 1 cup of sugar.
3. Pour 3 cups of cream and 1 teaspoon of vanilla over the fruit mixture.
4. Mix together well and place in a large lidded container. Place in the freezer for about 12 hours.
I find it is easier to scoop if I take it out of the freezer 10 minutes before I want to serve it. This is less fluffy than a lot of our ice cream is now but still delicious and so easy to make.
