Strawberry Ice Cream


2 cups (480 ml) half-and-half
5 large egg yolks
2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup strawberry puree (sauce)

Strawberry Puree: For strawberry puree, place one 20 ounce bag (570 grams) of thawed, frozen unsweetened strawberries in a blender along with 1/4 cup sugar. Process the berries until they are pureed. This should make 1-1/4 cup (50 grams) of puree. This can be stored in the fridge for up to 10 days.


In a small saucepan, combine the half-and-half with the vanilla and boil to the scalding point (when the milk begins to foam). Remove from heat and set aside.

In a stainless steel bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until light and fluffy. (You can use a wire whisk or an electric beater).

Gradually add in the half-and-half mixture. Beat constantly so the eggs won't curdle.

Place the stainless steel bowl over a saucepan of gently boiling water, and stir until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.

Remove the custard from the heat but continue stirring for a few minutes.

Now add the strawberry puree. Cover and let cool to room temperature.

Refrigerate the custard until it is cold (preferable overnight).

Transfer the cold custard to the chilled container of your ice cream maker. Process according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Make about 3 cups of ice cream
