Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

Summer is here! Bring on the fresh fruit and home made ice cream!Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

From: David Lebovitz

1 lb. fresh strawberries, cleaned, hulled, sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbs. vodka (I left this out and it was fine)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

In a bowl, place the sliced strawberries, sugar and vodka and let them macerate for an hour, stirring them every once in a while.

In a food processor, pulse together the strawberries and their liquid with the sour cream, heavy cream and lemon juice. Process until it has just a few chunks but is mostly smooth. Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. (I had put mine in the freezer for a few hours afterwords to let it firm up a bit more.)
