Remember me canning whole strawberries? It was time to put some to good use. One of the reason I can whole fruits is to extend their use into the Winter months but, Summer calls for Homemade Ice Cream!! What better way to flavor my homemade ice creams then with home canned fruits! Enjoy! Diane
Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream *using electric ice cream maker
1 1/2 cups Strawberries mashed or pureed. (I use my home canned whole strawberries, cutting and crushing them in a bowl, and I also add just a splash of the strawberry juice from the jar.)
In a medium bowl, use a whisk to combine the milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and extracts.
Turn on the Cuisinart ice cream maker; pour the base mixture into the frozen freezer bowl and let mix a few minutes then add in the strawberries and let mix until thickened, about 20 minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture. Transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours for a more traditional hard ice cream.
For easier scooping, remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
