I didn't forget about ice cream last week; we made one. I just failed to get pictures of it. If you want to read about last week's Dulce de Leche & Toffee Crunch ice cream, you can here.
It was little Miss Bright Eyes' turn to pick this week and Strawberry won the flavor roulette. Which strikes me as odd, because the little bugger won't eat a real, fresh strawberry to save her life.
Strawberries are absolutely gorgeous right now, so I picked some promising ones and figured that if Miss M. won't eat these strawberries, she's nuts.
I also gilded the lily by choosing a recipe from a couple of dudes who know ice cream.
And yeah, the above is a contender for Shitty Photo of the Month because I am too gorked out over the ice cream to notice the toy microphone in the background. And if you're thinking of buying your kid one of those microphone thingys, don't.
Ben and Jerry's Strawberry Ice Cream
1 pint strawberries, hulled and chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium bowl, combine strawberries with lemon juice and 1/4 cup sugar. Refrigerate for one hour.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and the sugar together. Beat in cream and milk. Add vanilla and strawberry mixture, including the juices. Chill in refrigerator until cold, then pour into ice cream maker.
Freeze per ice cream manufacturer's directions.
**Postscript: Everyone loved the ice cream, except for the girl who picked it. Sigh. She's nuts.
**If eating raw eggs gives you the heebie jeebies, you can use pasteurized eggs.
