I decided to make a strawberry ice cream but wanted to keep it simple and still have that wow effect. I looked around and found a simple recipe but I just had to mess with it. (Never can leave recipes alone.)
So here we go. The only preparation that can be time consuming is the preparation of the strawberries. When you take the strawberries out of the packet, please rinse it! When you eat the ice cream you want to bite down on strawberries, not sand. I t cut the strawberries into quarters and sprinkle the sugar over it. Then, let it sit for around 2 hours. Yes, I know, but that is part of getting a ‘beautiful’ end product. See it like this; Picasso prepared his colors before he started to paint a masterpiece. It was time consuming to get it right, but in the end the painting was perfect. The same goes here, you are preparing the strawberries that are the main ingredient to the ice cream, and it has to be perfect. When it is done, you will be able to use all your sense to enjoy this perfect ice cream! It is a wonderful and creamy texture, and still is so simple. So….try it….it is fun and be creative!!! Paint your picture!!!
I have a Cuisinart 2-Quart Ice Cream Maker and the strawberries and chocolate will be added to the ice cream at the last 5 minutes.
For other makes follow the manufactures instructions for the best results.
**Important Tip: Nuts and other ingredients that are added to the ice cream should be no larger than a chocolate chip.
