Love It Wednesday #5 - I Scream!

This week I praise this book by David Lebovitz. I made the recipe below which is KILLER. I don't even like sour cream, but this ice cream is to die for and so easy to make.

Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

Yield: Makes 1 1/4 quarts ice cream


1 pound fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon vodka or kirsch (I left this out)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


1. Slice the strawberries and toss them in a medium bowl with the sugar and vodka or kirsch, if using. I left the alcohol out. Stir until the sugar begins to dissolve and all of the strawberries are coated. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
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. Refrigerate mixture for at least one hour. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
