Strawberry Ice Cream Fit for a Queen

Her Majesty (Moi!) loves this!!
In honor of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, I've made old fashioned strawberry ice cream to go with my friend, Pat's, from,   chocolate biscuit cake, found here.  I think the queen will love this combination, don't you?  I know the Queen and King of this household sure do!!!  If you love STRAWBERRIES as much as I do, be sure to try this creamy, smooth , fabulous ice cream this Summer!!

Recipe is from The Donvier Ice Cream and Dessert Book    

1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups whole strawberries, fresh, or frozen and thawed
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1 t. vanilla

In a saucepan over medium heat, heat milk until hot.  In a small mixing bowl whisk together sugar and edds.  Whisking constantly, gradually add hot milk to egg.  Return mixture to saucepan over medium heat.  Stirring constantly, cook until slightly thickened, about 5-8 minutes.  Cool.  (I put this saucepan into a bowl of ice water to cool quickly).

In a blender or food processor, puree fruit with cream.  Stir into cooled custard.  Add vanilla  Chill thoroughly.  Follow directions for your ice cream maker. 

Makes about 1 quart.

  2. I want some!

    Come and join me with my Color Connection meme through my PINK entry. Hope you join the fun!

  3. Oh YUUUMMMMM! It does look fit for a king and queen....Your Magesty. =)

  4. Kitty, I think this would be a lovely combination. When the Queen reads our blogs, I know she is going to want some! ;)

  5. I absolutely LOVE strawberry ice cream!

    My husband is the one who makes ice cream in this family - but he hates it - so that leaves a lot of ice cream for me to eat........and you know it's been forever and a day since he's made some.

    I think it is time and you just majorally inspired me to ask him to use your recipe, thanks Kitty!!! YUM!!!

  6. Looks so good...Stopping by to say...Happy Pink Saturday!
    Stop by My Sweet Prairie Home...I love to have company! God Bless You !

    Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday!! ~Lorraine ♥♥♥

  9. Hi darling, Oh YUMMMMMM!! This looks and sounds delicious. I hope you found out if the geraniums will thrive in Texas. They are so hardy here, we're in desperate need of some rain and they're going.. hope you're having a super w/k. hugs ~lynne~

  10. This sounds divine! Thanks so much for sharing.


  11. Sounds wonderful! I haven't made ice cream in ages, this gives me the urge!

  12. There is nothing better than homemade strawberry ice cream. Local berries are in but they need another week to sweeten up. Can't wait to try this, Kitty. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Kitty, I have been wanting to make some homemade strawberry ice cream. In about two weeks, I will try this out!

  14. Oh yes Her Majesty would LOVE this!!! looks and sounds simply wonderful!!

  19. I haven't had strawberry ice cream in forever. Yum!

  20. Sounds delicious!!! We made vanilla ice cream for Memorial Day but I was thinking then about what flavors I'd like to make in the future. I'll copy this recipe - thanks for sharing it. I found your link at Cozy Home Scenes. Hugs ~ Mary

  21. Yum! This looks so yummy I wish I had an ice cream maker. Instead, I'll just have to drool at your pictures and enjoy the store bought strawberry ice cream that's in my freezer right now. I know it's not as good as your homemade version is. I'm sure many others will enjoy making it, so thanks for sharing your recipes at Your Cozy Home Party each week.

  22. Hi Kitty,
    What a great Ice Cream for our summertime treats. The Strawberries are great right now, so I can't wait to try your recipe, yum! Hope you are having a great week and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
