Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

I have become a strawberry ice cream convert in my adulthood. When I was a kid, I didn’t want to be anywhere near the stuff. I’ve always adored strawberries, but for some reason strawberry ice cream couldn’t have been more vile to me. The worst possible thing was when I would be at someone else’s house and a carton of Neapolitan ice cream appeared. Vanilla? Good. Chocolate? Good. Strawberry? Bleh. And I felt like it contaminated both of the others. God forbid a drop of strawberry touched one of the other two. I wouldn’t eat the entire bowl. What was wrong with me?? Maybe I had never had really good strawberry ice cream. Maybe my palate had yet to mature. Well, now I’m all grown up and I’m here to tell you that this fresh strawberry ice cream is most definitely one of the best things you can make this summer.
