Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Strawberry Ice Cream

Do you have extra ripe, end of season strawberries?  What is better in August than Ice Cream?

3 Large Egg Yolks
3/4 Cup Heavy Cream
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
3/4 Cup Half and Half
4 Cups Quartered Strawberries, rinsed and dried
1 Tsp Orange Extract
1/8 Tsp Salt
1 Tbl Orange Liqueur, such as Triple Sec or Orange Rum

Place the strawberries in a bowl and cover with 1/4 cup sugar, set aside.

 Put half and half in a medium sugar in a heavy pot over medium heat.  Heat gently. 

While hating, put the egg yolks in a bowl and whip gently. 

When half and half mixture is warm, temper into the eggs.

Then return to pot.  Continue to cook gently until thick.  Place sieve over a large heat safe bowl.

Pour the mixture through the sieve, discarding solids. 

Stir in heavy cream, vanilla and liqueur.

Stir in the strawberries and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
