Summertime Strawberry Ice Cream
Make this with summer's sweetest strawberries, or substitute raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries -- even peaches.
Serves: makes about 1 1/2 quarts
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes


1 pint fresh strawberries
2 cups heavy cream, chilled
1 cup half-and-half, chilled
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Dash of salt

Rinse and hull the strawberries. Roughly chop the berries and transfer half to a small bowl. Mash the other half with a fork or potato masher; they will not be smooth but still a little chunky. Add them to the chopped berries. Chill for at least 1 hour.

Pour the cream and half-and-half into a bowl and add the sugar, vanilla, and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar dissolves.

Pour the cream into the canister of an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.

When the ice cream is the consistency of whipped cream, stir in the berries. Transfer to a shallow quart container, cover with plastic wrap, and freeze in the refrigerator’s freezer for at least 3 hours until ready to serve. Let the ice cream sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes before scooping.
