I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Strawberry Ice Cream

What a great dessert to make when strawberries are in season.  This beats any thing you buy at the store.

(2 quarts)

*1 pint (2 -2 1/2 cups) fresh strawberries, hulled, & pureed
*1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
*1/4 cup white sugar
*2 large eggs
*3/4 cup sugar
*2 cups heavy whipping cream
*1 cup whole milk
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

~Combine strawberries, lemon juice & 1/4 cup sugar in a medium mixing bowl.
~Cover and store in refrigerator for 1 hour.
~In a large mixing bowl whisk eggs until light & fluffy (about 2-3 minutes)
~Slowly add 3/4 cup sugar, mix well.
~Stir in milk & vanilla, mix well.
~Add strawberries with juice and mix well.
~Gently stir in whipping cream just until combined.
~Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's directions.
puree the strawberries first.

`If you are worried about having raw eggs in the ice cream try this:  Follow the recipe, but after whisking the eggs, sugar & adding the milk; heat the mixture to just below a boil over low heat.  Remove from heat.  Add Vanilla.  Cool mixture in refrigerator.  After cooling, add strawberries & cream.  Place in ice cream maker.
