Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream…Yes Please!

When you spend your Saturday morning doing this…You may find yourself making this Saturday afternoon!

Strawberry Ice Cream

The Usual Cast Of Characters

3 Cups fresh ripe strawberries, stemmed and sliced

4 Tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 Cups sugar, divided

1 1/2 Cups whole milk

2 3/4 Cup heavy cream

1 1/2 Teaspoons vanilla extract

The Steps to Glory

1. In a small bowl combine strawberries, lemon juice and 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir gentle and allow berries to macerate in juices for 1-2 hours. Strain berries, reserve juice and mash half of the berries.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and milk until dissolved. Stir in heavy cream, reserved strawberry juice, mashed strawberries and vanilla.

3. Turn on ice cream maker, pour mixture into freezer bowl and mix until thickened, about 20-25 minutes.

4. Five minutes before mixing is complete, add remaining strawberries and mix completely.

5. The Ice Cream will have a soft, creamy texture. If you desire a firmer consistency, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for about 2 hours.

6. Grab a spoon and dig in!

Some New Old Things on Mother’s Day

How does Mother’s Day look at your house? Here is my cozy home in Annapolis, it’s a rainy day on the couch, eating cookies and introducing The Princess to the magic of “Mary Poppins”! Not thrilling but exactly what I dreamed life would be like the first time I met my Princess.

It’s a great day to share some of my new finds. Each one made me stop and smile before I brought them to brighten our cozy home.

This turn of the century Sunshine Biscuit tin joins the Maryland Biscuit tin on the kitchen cabinet.

You can never have too many textile spools.

This beautiful pillow came all the way from France.

I’m not sure where I’m going to put this beautiful antique stained glass window, but it will be the perfect spot eventually.
