I scream, you scream. We ALL scream for ice cream! Isn’t this the truth? There’s something special about this all American summertime treat. The fresh and creamy taste is unlike anything else. And if you are an ice cream fanatic like me, you know just how great a bowl or two of homemade ice cream can be. And if you make it enough for your family, you may even become an ice cream snob. It’s okay. I believe that’s it’s perfectly normal to be particular on treats such as ice cream. No more store bought for us. Nothing is better than fresh cream, low sugar, and lots of flavor. Yum.

With the convenience of the newer models of ice cream machines you can make this summertime treat anytime. And ice cream machines are fairly inexpensive. You can purchase one for about the same price if you bought 2 half gallons each week for a month at the grocery store. It’s one of those purchases I say keeps on giving. You will use it for years. Those are the best kinds of gifts!

My favorite additions to homemade ice cream the fresh fruit that is in season. And strawberries are so beautiful and sweet right now. A trick to making the best strawberry ice cream is roasting your strawberries in the oven. I know, kinda sounds a little crazy, but trust me. The fruit becomes even more rich and sweet, dark red in color, and you don’t get those little ice crystals on roasted fruit when you make homemade ice cream.

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month. It’s the perfect time to start making your own ice cream. I just love food holidays.

And just remember to always save room for ice cream! Especially homemade.

    What a great idea roasting the strawberries! And we have some in season )or greenhouse ones, I’m not sure) which is about the only fruit in common nowadays it seems with you all in the Northern Hemisphere :D Hope you and the family had a great 4th of July mum!! xxx

    I had no idea July as National Ice Cream month. Well that means I must celebrate. I was allegoric to chocolate when I was young. Thank the heavens I outgrew that!!!!! Anyway strawberry is still a huge favorite. You would think that chocolate would take that spot over, but it never did. I tasted my first homemade ice cream about a year ago. AND I am a woman of a certain age. It wasn’t long before I was the proud owner of a wonderful ice cream machine. I am pinning this recipe. You can see from the photo how creamy it is!!!!

    Wow, does that look heavenly. I’ve roasted strawberries for salad dressing and LOVED them-I can just imagine how delicious they would be in ice cream.

    Time to find room in the freezer for the canister to my ice cream maker….summer has arrived and homemade ice cream is a super way to cool off.

    Thank you Wendy!
