Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry is in season again! What can we do with them? In hot and humid Singapore, what's better than savoring homemade fresh strawberry icecream? I've never succeed in making icecream as most recipes works best with icecream churner. However this recipes is real easy that even I succeeded (though not without wasting 300ml of cream which eventually becomes butter!!!). Here's the recipes...
Ingredients...500g ripe strawberries
175g sugar
2 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 to 3 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
300ml well chilled whipping cream

  1. Chilled 4 to 6 small glassess in the freezer
  2. Whip cream (well chilled) and put in fridge to chill
  3. Rinse strawberries, pat dry, remove stems and white core
  4. To make the stawberry syrup, blend 75g of the strawberries with 80g of the sugar and 2 tablespoons of water until smooth
  5. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat till slightly thicken
  6. Allow to cool then stir in balsamic vinegar
  7. Coarsely blend the remaining strawberries with the remaining sugar and lemon juice
  8. Fold the chilled whipped cream into the strawberry puree
  9. Drizzle syrup on the side of the chilled glasses then fill with strawberry mix.
  10. Cover with foil and freeze for 4 hours

Enjoy !
