It is crazy how the days that I have the most to write about are the same days that I have the least time to write.
I want to share some of the new recipes I've tried with our seasonal produce and our favorite cook-out food. I hope to show updates on our home project. Maybe even share the seasonal recipe organizer that appears to be working well for me.
But for now, I'll just share the dessert I made for our work crew this week.
Does anything say summer like homemade ice cream? With fresh strawberries in our garden, strawberry ice cream is a logical choice. I tried a new (to me) recipe from Passionate Homemaking. Not only was it super simple, it incorporated honey! If you prefer to use sugar, replace the honey in this recipe for one cup of sugar. I find that it is hard to cut back the sweetener in ice cream. Somehow freezing seems to disappear sweeteners.
My ice cream churn was large enough to hold a double batch. And it didn't last long!
Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream
2 cup cream (Since I use raw milk, I just skimmed some cream off my milk.)
2 cup milk
2-3 cup mashed strawberries
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup strawberry jam (optional for greater strawberry flavor)
Blend all together. Pour into ice cream maker. Freeze according to ice cream maker's directions.
