Strawberry Crème Fraîche Ice Cream

Strawberry Crème Fraîche Ice Cream

I just couldn’t wait to share this ice cream with you! I had another post all ready to go, but this ice cream post won out because it’s just that good. This was a fun recipe to make because it used an ingredient I’d never heard of before – crème fraîche.  Crème fraîche is a thick soured cream with a very smooth texture. I couldn’t find this specialty ingredient at my local Meijer, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise – apparently it is very expensive to buy, and now I know from experience that it’s really simple to make yourself! (Here is a recipe I posted for homemade crème fraîche)

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups strawberries, hulled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup creme fraiche
