You need just four ingredients to make this delicious homemade Strawberry Ice Cream. Strawberries, obviously, a lemon, double cream and a little sugar. It takes barely any time to prepare, just a little chopping and churning until you have a super tasty ice cream and a great sense of satisfaction!
Strawberries shout Summer to me, I know that you can buy them all year round but I don’t think it’s worth it in the Winter. Summer Strawberries taste and smell so much better and picking your own, whether from the garden or a PYO farm is a Summer ritual I love.
I grew up in Kent, where we were surrounded by fields of Strawberries. To earn some money after I’d finished my exams one Summer I remember getting up early, to catch a big red double decker bus with some friends. It took us to Mockbegger Farm where we picked Strawberries for a whole day. Back breaking work and I think I earned something pitiful like £12! My friend earned even less than that because the half Strawberries she picked were rejected for being under ripe and not up to M&S standards!
This would be a great ice cream to make and enjoy whilst watching some of the Wimbledon tennis matches this year. Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream, tennis on the TV, windows wide open, sun streaming in, can’t wait!
I used my Savisto Ice Cream maker to churn this Strawberry Ice Cream. You can find the same one on sale in our shop for just £21.95, RRP £41.95 which is a great buy. I’ve been using this Ice Cream maker every week for almost a year now and I am very happy with it. If you’re planning on buying an ice cream machine this is one I’d recommend. It’s easy to use and compact to store. I keep my bowl in the freezer so that it is ready to churn whenever I want to make ice cream or sorbet. It has a wide opening to pour your mixture into and a handy timer which not all other machines in this price range have. It makes a great present for older children and teens who like cooking and this simple Strawberry Ice cream is a great recipe to start with.
