I scream! You scream! We all scream for ice cream!

Hello and welcome to the first day of the Almost Summer Sundae Celebration! Yes, we know that’s a lot of “S”s, so we are kicking off with an ice cream that starts with an s! Can you guess what it is? I’ll give you a hint. What’s a classic ice cream, part of a carton of Neopolitan, and my personal favorite ice cream? You guessed it!!! Strawberry!! I love this flavor and I think you will too!

Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance at this week’s great prize!

6 cups fresh strawberries (about 3 pints)

1 1/2 cup sugar

4 cups dairy (I like to use 2 cups of heavy cream and 2 cups of light cream, but you decide how rich you want it)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Clean the berries and put them in a bowl. Crush them into a chunky puree with your hands, a potato masher, or stick blender. Stir in 3/4 cup sugar and let it sit one hour.

Add the dairy, the rest of the sugar, and the vanilla. Stir. Chill until cold.

Pour the mixture into the canister of your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions. (With my Cuisinart, I just press a button and let it run for about 30 minutes. It couldn’t be easier!

This is so much better than anything you’ll find in the supermarket’s freezer case!
