This is a simple recipe, with stunning results. No ice cream maker needed!
I was inspired by this recipe. I don't have an ice cream maker so I was intrigued by this recipe that didn't need one. The flavors were great together and I only slightly altered it.
Just look at those fabulous chunks of roasted strawberry.
So here's how I made it:
Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream Pie
2 lbs strawberries, fresh - washed, hulled, and cut into quarters
2 C whipping cream
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 powdered sugar
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
Place the cut strawberries on sheet pan or in a large casserole dish. Mix balsamic vinegar and brown sugar together and drizzle over the strawberries. Mix it well. Roast the strawberry mixture for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.
After the strawberries have cooked, mash them a bit with a masher and let them cool.
Whip the whipping cream with powdered sugar until still peaks form.
Fold in the strawberry mixture, get all those juices in there.
Line a round cake pan (I used a spring form pan) with cling wrap. Pour in the whipped cream strawberry mixture and cover with more cling film. Place the cling film right on top, touching the ice cream. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
Release from pan, cut into beautiful ice cream slices, top and serve.
I must confess, my mind is going a mile a minute with this recipe. You might see similar ice cream pies in the future. ;)

I've taken pics from my last two June harvests but not posted these!
On June 23rd I picked these:
The cucumbers were made into Asian cucumbers for a side dish at dinner. My daughter and I made more kale chips, and some kale went into a smoothie too. The strawberry was shared, very sweet. The little tomatoes were snacked on. The zucchini waited until the next harvest to be used.
On June 27 I gathered:
Zucchini from the other day and this one ended up shredded and frozen for zucchini bread in the fall. The big tomato was eaten with lunch. The little tomatoes went in salad. The cucumbers were on a veggie tray as a pre-dinner snack.
And now you're caught up on my June harvest. I'm hoping things will really get going more in July!
