Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe

When we're out in the fields on hot summer days, our family always looks forward to coming in to a cool, refreshing bowl of strawberry ice cream. But even when it's cold outside, we seem to find an excuse to make this treat!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour + cooling Process: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1-1/2 pints strawberries, hulled
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 4 cups half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • Red food coloring

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine flour, 2 cups sugar and salt. Whisk in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk a small amount of hot mixture into eggs; return all to pan, whisking constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from heat immediately.
  • 3. Quickly transfer to a large bowl; place bowl in a pan of ice water. Stir gently and occasionally for 2 minutes. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  • 4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl and using a potato masher, crush berries with lemon juice and remaining sugar. Let stand 1 hour. Stir cream, vanilla, food coloring if desired and berry mixture into custard.
  • 5. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. (Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) Transfer ice cream to freezer containers, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze 2-4 hours or until firm. Repeat with remaining ice cream mixture. Yield: 3 quarts.
