Write a review
  1. 3 cups finely chopped fresh strawberries, divided
  2. ½ cup sugar, divided
  3. 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  4. 1 cup whole milk
  5. 5 large egg yolks
  6. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  7. ⅛ teaspoon salt
  8. Red liquid food coloring (optional)
  1. In a large saucepan, cook 1½ cups strawberries and ¼ cup sugar over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Stir in cream and milk, and cook just until bubbles form around sides of pan; remove from heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks and remaining ¼ cup sugar. Whisking constantly, add half of hot cream mixture to egg yolks in a slow, steady stream. Whisk egg mixture into remaining milk mixture in saucepan, and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat, and whisk in vanilla and salt; tint with food coloring, if desired. Pour mixture into a large bowl, cover, and refrigerate until cold, at least 6 hours or overnight.
  3. Pour mixture into the container of an electric ice cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions, adding remaining 1½ cups strawberries when mixture is partially frozen. Transfer ice cream to a freezer-safe container, and freeze until firm, at least 4 hours.
