Do you find things in your fridge that you bought for a recipe that you ended up not making? I always do. Usually it’s something odd, like an avocado or leeks or some sort of condiment. I found a huge container of sour cream. I don’t remember what I bought it for. I am sure that whatever my original plan was, it could not have topped this!!
This Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream from The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, and Sweet Accompanimentsby the master, David Lebovitz, couldn’t be any easier. And it couldn’t be any tastier! I didn’t have cream, so I subbed whole milk, not as rich, but still oh-so-good.
Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream
Makes about 1 1/4 quarts
- 1 pound fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled (I used frozen)
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 1 tbsp. vodka or kirsch (I used kirsch)
- 1 c. sour cream
- 1 c. heavy cream (I used whole milk)
- 1/2 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1) Slice the strawberries and toss them in a bowl with the sugar and vodka or kirsch. Stir until the sugar begins to dissolve. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring every so often.
2) Pulse the strawberries and their liquid with the sour cream, heavy cream and lemon juice in a blender or food processor until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky.
3) Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
