Did You Know?...
Traditional ice cream recipes pretty much follow the same format.
You make a thickening base with milk and sugar, add eggs, cream and the fruit or other flavorings then freeze.
Freezing it as is in a regular container will not really get you the proper consistency. It will have ice crystals on it.
A proper ice cream maker will chill the mixture properly, giving you a nice creamy fresh tasting dessert.
You can replace the strawberries with other crushed fresh fruit like peaches or nectarines if you wish. They should be very ripe, ripe enough to give off lots of juice when they are mashed. You can add a bit of sugar to the fruit to get the juices running too.
