strawberry ice cream

7.18.2008

I get a lot of kitchen contraptions and appliances as gifts from my friends in the past few years. It's probably because I love cooking and baking. I admit there are somethings I've returned or exchanged but one of my favorite keepers was a ice cream machine from my college roommate Thu. You scream. I scream, We all scream for ice cream--- especially in the past few days of boiling temperatures. I had a ton of fresh strawberries and decided make a vanilla ice cream from The Ultimate Ice Cream Book and throw in the berries to make my very own strawberry ice cream.

ingredients
  • 2 cups milk 
  • 2 large eggs plus 
  • 2 egg yolks, lightly beaten 
  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk 
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 2 cups strawberries, muddled  
directions
  1. Bring the milk to a simmer in a heavy medium saucepan.
  2. Slowly beat the hot milk into the eggs in a medium mixing bowl. Pour the entire mixture back into the pan and place over low heat. Stir constantly with a whisk until the custard thickens slightly. Be careful not to let the mixture boil or the eggs will scramble.
  3. Remove from the heat and pour the hot custard through a strainer into a large clean bowl.
  4. Allow the custard to cool slightly, then stir in the condensed milk and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
  5. Stir the chilled custard, then freeze in 1 or 2 batches in the ice cream machine. Add strawberries.
  6. When finished, the ice cream will be soft but ready to eat.
