Homemade Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream

OK now, dont get judgmental - It is Obvious & my love affair with Strawberries continues with this post. And as promised here's a post on how to make your own homemade Strawberry Ice Cream. This post is less about photography & more about strawberries and my guilty pleasure ICE CREAM. 
So sit back 'n' Chillax .....!

Ingredients: -
2 cups Strawberries, cut in half
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup heavy cream
A Pinch teaspoon salt
5-6 drops teaspoon vanilla extract
In a bowl, take half cut strawberries and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and the lemon juice.
Toss to combine and set aside for ~2 hrs. Keep mixing occasionally.
Now in a pan, stir together cream, remaining  sugar and a pinch of salt.  
Bring the mix to a simmer, then turn the temperature all the way down to low.
Puree the strawberry mixture in a blender till smooth.  
Stir the strawberry puree into the cream mixture until completely incorporated, also add vanilla extract at this stage.

Place bowl in the refrigerator and allow the mixture to cool completely – at least two hours preferably overnight. Mix well & it is ready to go into ice cream maker as per instructions of manufacturer. Once done transfer to a air-tight container & leave in freezer at least for 2 hrs to let it firm up. Enjoy fresh homemade strawberry icecream topped with Mint leaves.

My lot couldn't survive for more than a day & was all gone. 

Hope you give it a shot and share with me how you did....... Love , Sonia.
