Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries plus one cup, hulled, chopped and divided (1 1/2 pints total)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk whole is best
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate cut into chunks

Instructions

  1. Combine 2 cups fresh strawberries, 1/3 cup sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Set aside in refrigerator for one hour.
  3. Set aside the last cup of chopped berries without sugar to add at end of freezing.

Prepare base of ice cream:

  1. Whisk the eggs together in a medium size bowl until light and fluffy using an electric mixer or stand mixer for about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in sugar a little at a time, until mixed well, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour in the cream and milk, and whisk to blend.
  3. Pour the ingredients into the prepared ice cream mixer, along with the fruit.
  4. Add the fruit and juice collected in bowl all at once with the cream base and let freeze in mixer. Plug in and let churn. Follow manufacture directions for your specific mixer.
  5. After the ice cream has set up in the mixer, toss in an additional 1 cup of chopped berries and the chopped white chocolate and let mix for about 1 more minute.
  6. Store in freezer. Can be made ahead.
  7. Cover bowl with saran wrap or foil and store in freezer until ready to eat.

Recipe Notes

-Very important! If you are using the smaller Cuisinart or similar ice cream maker, make sure the canister is frozen well. Leave in the freezer for at least a day, two is better, don't take the canister out until you are ready to pour the mixture in. Also, I have found if you are using a larger ice cream maker, such as the White Mountain which I describe, it helps to chill the canister in your fridge, and the dasher as well. Or simply rinse with cold water and dry. Avoid setting the ice cream makers in the sun as they are churning, less heat exposure is better when you are churning.
