  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 cups pureed strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Scald whole milk.
  • Whisk cornstarch with a small amount of milk and add along with 2 cups sugar and salt.
  • Cook while stirring until slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon (about 4-6 minutes).
  • Whisk eggs in a separate bowl.
  • Add about 1 cup of hot milk mixture to eggs while whisking constantly to temper the eggs.
  • Add egg/milk mixture back to the larger pot of heated milk mixture and whisk constantly.
  • Cook for 1-2 additional minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add heavy cream.
  • Puree strawberries with approximately 1/2 cup of sugar.
  • Add strawberries to milk/cream mixture and stir thoroughly.
  • Chill until cool.
  • Pour into your ice cream maker and top off with additional whole milk to fill line if desired.
  • Follow directions for making ice cream. We set ours up and added ice and rock salt and plugged in the ice cream maker. It took approximately 45 minutes to run the cycle and then had to freeze for an additional 2 hours because we didn't have enough ice.
  • Serve and enjoy.
