There is nothing quite as delicious as creamy, luscious homemade ice cream to serve in summertime when friends are coming over. Though do-it-yourself ice cream does take some time to make every gorgeously velvet mouthful is certainly worth it and you will you know your ice cream is super fresh, made with only the very best ingredients. Roasting the strawberries for this recipe with maple syrup and balsamic vinegar produces the most intensely gorgeous strawberry flavour.
You can make lovely ice cream both with and without an ice cream maker. Below there are instructions for both methods.
It is best to roast the strawberries and make the custard base the day before you are wanting to serve it as then you’ll have plenty of time to thoroughly chill everything before churning the ice cream.
