Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream
How good is homemade ice cream?? It makes me so happy. When we registered for an ice cream maker for our wedding, I secretly thought it might be one of those things that you use a bunch at the beginning and then it sits on the shelf for years. I have several of those in my pantry currently. Panini maker anyone? But I have to say, our ice cream maker has some good miles on it. And since it's officially pool season this weekend, it is time to break it out.
Homemade strawberry ice cream makes me think of the 4th of July. Growing up, we would always go to the Martin's 4th of July party and they would always make strawberry ice cream in the big wooden ice cream maker with the ice salt and all. It tasted amazing. It was sticky summer in a bowl. This weekend feels like the perfect time to make the perfect summer ice cream.
This seems labor intensive, but it's not difficult at all and completely worth it. It's the real deal, custard base ice cream. No messing around with this. And it's got real strawberries pureed right in. It's fresh and creamy and incredible. I am dorkily excited just thinking about you guys trying it because it's just that good.
