    • About

    If possible, use fresh, very ripe strawberries in season for this recipe. Failing that, individually quick-frozen strawberries will have more flavor than the underripe, out-of-season fruit.


    • 1 batch Basic Mixture for Fruit Ices
    • 1 pint fresh strawberries


    Prepare the basic mixture and cool to room temperature. While the mixture is cooling, rinse, hull, and puree the strawberries in a blender. Measure cups puree. Stir the puree and the mixture together and freeze in an ice cream maker.
