Wild Strawberry Ice Cream

July 7, 2013

Wild Strawberry Ice CreamIce cream is the perfect treat to cool you off in the midst of summer. If you have the patience to gather a pound of wild strawberries (or know someone who does) this is a refreshing way to experience the immense flavour of this tiny fruit. Enjoy!

Last year, I made these Wild Strawberry Tartlets.


• 1 lb (454g) wild strawberries
• 2 cups heavy cream
• 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 oz gin or vodka

Mix the strawberries, sugar and gin in a bowl. Leave to macerate for about an hour.
Add the cream and pulse in a blender or food processor until just smooth.
Put the mixture in the fridge for about an hour and then churn in ice cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions.

“Mix the strawberries, sugar and gin…” what a fantastic way to start a recipe!!
And with the temperature rising, this is perfect.

This is the perfect ice cream for my mother!! Not because of the booze (although that doesn’t hurt) but because its an egg-less recipe …. I will do it as soon as possible 🙂

Two of my favorite things. My grandmother used to make wild strawberry jam, it was to most delicious thing, I’m sure this ice cream would be right up there.

I guess that’s how I got into it – my grandmother also used to make jam out of them. Tasty!
