Strawberry Ice Cream


I have had my ice cream maker for the last 14 years. I remember when I bought them I used to make ice cream always, any dinner party the dessert was ice cream.

Then after few years the craze went a bit low, the machine was brought out from the shelf only in the summer season or when my daughter really went on asking for home made ice cream.

But have to admit i had lot of pleasure making different kind of ice cream over the years.

Of course now in the shops there is so much variety of ice cream available there is no use in making them at home, but still i think you can't beat a nicley made home made ice cream.

I have also written the meathod for making with hand, if you don't have a ice cream maker.
I am sending this to Mike of Mike's Table for his Frozen Dessert event.
Thankyou for hosting the event Mike.

I received this wonderful award from Sume Rajesh of Suma's cuisine. I was se pleased to receive this from her. Thnakyou Suma.
Now comes the difficult part. I have to pass this to few of you and it is alwaysso difficult to choose, but have to so here it goes.

I am passing it to Cynthia of Taste Like Home I do love her place? Every satureday there is a very informative post there. And her cooking which I love as mostly it is new to me. I say mostly as some of her food I can relate to Kerala kitchen. Like her Souree post here.

Also to Viji of V Cusine. She is really amazing. To see how she whipp up all those delicious vegetarian food. Yumm.

And ofcourse Asha of Aroma and Foodi's Hope. She is like a Encyclopedia for dishes.
You want to know about a dish you know it will be there in her place.



Pouring into the ice cream maker

Pouring the cream

Almost there
Ingridients.
500 gm strawberries
100 gm powdered sugar
Juice from half lime
400 ml full cream

Mash the strawberries.
Add the sugar and lime to it.

Method:
Making the ice cream with the machine.
Pour the strawberry Mash to the machine.
Let it mix till it get a bit smooth and then ass the cream to it while still turning.
When the mix is creamy then you know it is done.
Serve them or you can freeze then for later use.

Making with Hand.

Whip the cream till it is thick.
Mix it gently to the strawberry mash.
Pour the mixture into a deepfreezer container.

Keep it in the fridge atleast for six hours.In between you can take it out twice and just beat it with a fork or a mixer so ice crystal doesn't form.

The home made ice-cream looks yummy! When home made you can control the portion and the ingredients and that helps a lot. Good one!

Sujatha said...

I love the texture.. My daughter loves strawberry flavor. I just made chocolate icecream y'day. Will sure make this next time.

Asha said...

Oh, thank you very much. You snuck in one while I was having my Pav Bhaji lunch! Hahaha!!
Thank you so much, will add to my list. Trisha went driving to University just to practice after lunch with dad sitting by her of course. Our car insurance doubled because she is a teenage driver!
She has to drive on busy highway for 25miles one way everyday when college starts and have to drive alone from August 25th. I won't eat or sleep from that day and need antacids for my twisted stomach!:D
