Testing my new toy, or how I created probably the best strawberry ice cream ever!

Last week was my birthday, and Domesticated Mum bought me an ice cream machine. So today I took it for a test drive and created what is probably the best, most strawberriest, strawberry ice cream I have ever tasted… And it only took me around 10 minutes plus freezing time.

Strawberries and Clotted Cream Ice Cream

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Freezing time (using machine)*

* times vary depending on what machine you are using, so check your instruction book.

Ingredients

  • 250g/9oz ripe strawberries
  • 55g/2oz caster sugar
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 225g/8oz clotted cream

  1. Remove the leafy hulls from the strawberries.
