Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Icecream

This recipe is from Pioneer Woman. I made a few changes to the recipe. The recipe below yields 2 quart of ice cream.

Ingredients:

  • Whole milk – 2 cups
  • Heavy cream – 2 cups
  • Egg – 2
  • Egg yolk – 3
  • Sugar – 1 cup plus 2 tbsps separated
  • Vanilla extract – 3/4 tsp
  • Strawberry – 1 lb, hulled

 

Method:

  • Combine milk and cream together in a sauce pan.
  • Bring it to a boil on medium heat. Stir the milk once in a while.
  • Switch to low heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes.

  • Beat eggs, egg yolks and 1 cup of sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until the egg mixture turns thick and pale yellow in color.(Electric mixer works better than a whisk)
  • Let the mixer run on very low speed. Pour 1 cup of hot milk mixture slowly into the egg mixture. Mix until well combined.

  • Pour the egg mixture slowly back into the milk mixture and whisking at the same time. It prevents the egg from curdling. The custard will become frothy.

  • Whisk in the strawberry puree until well combined.(I did not use a whisk in the picture. But a whisk will work really well instead of a spatula)

  • Cover the custard with a cling wrap. The wrap should touch the top of the custard to prevent a skin from forming as the custard cools.

  • Refrigerate the custard mixture until it is very cold. For best result, let the custard cool overnight.

  • Follow the instructions  on your ice cream maker and churn the mixture.
  • I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker. I chill the Cuisinart ice cream bowl for 24 hours before making the ice cream.
  • I place the chilled bowl in the ice cream maker. Place the beater inside and close the lid.
  • I turn on the machine and pour the strawberry custard slowly into the bowl.
  • The ice cream will be ready within 25 minutes of churning.
