Ice 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.
