    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • 200g caster sugar
  • 500g tub crème fraîche

Method

  1. Remove the tops from the strawberries and put in a food processor with the sugar. Blitz to make a rough purée – a few chunky bits add texture to the ice cream.

  2. Tip the crème fraîche into a bowl and stir in the strawberry purée. Put in an ice-cream maker to churn or put the bowl into the freezer until the ice cream is firm 3cm in from the edge – about 1-2 hrs. Remove from the freezer and whisk to break down the ice crystals, return to the freezer for 1 hr longer, then whisk again. Transfer the ice cream to a freezerproof container with a lid and freeze until firm.

  3. To serve, transfer the ice cream to the fridge for about 20 mins until it is soft enough to scoop.
