Tasty Thursday

This week's Tasty Thursday is from Ice Cream Mix-Ins by Jeff Keys. The book is full of the most luscious and rich ice creams around. Try this mouthwatering recipe out!

Perfect Strawberry
1 1/2 pounds fresh ripe strawberries, washed, dried, stemmed, and quartered
1 cup sugar, divided
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Toss the strawberries with 1/4 cup sugar and let macerate for 1 hour. This brings on a chemistry change in the strawberries, develops the flavors, brings out the juices, and makes it bright and out front. Put the strawberries and their juices into a food processor and puree.

In a medium bowl, add the cream, milk, remaining sugar, and strawberry puree and blend thoroughly. Pour the mix into an ice cream maker, add the lemon juice, and process according to the manufacturer's instructions. Scoop the ice cream into a container and then place in the freezer to cure and harden. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
