Saturday was my husband’s family’s annual ice cream social/family reunion. They hold it every year at a local park to celebrate his Grandmother’s birthday although she has been gone for many years.
There were six different flavors of ice cream this year – root beer, lemon, vanilla with Butterfingers, cherry Snickers, chocolate M&M, and strawberry. I of course had to sample them all. (I took pictures of them all to show you, but today my hard drive on my six month old computer went out and I can’t edit them on my son’s borrowed laptop.) grrrr 🙁
My SIL made the strawberry ice cream, but she was kind enough to mention that it was a favorite recipe that I had given her years ago. We received an ice cream maker for our wedding and it had a little booklet of recipes that included this easy, creamy and oh so delicious strawberry ice cream recipe which we have been making for 30 years.
This family favorite recipe is my entry for the National Ice Cream Month – Ice Cream Social. I am also submitting this recipe to the Family Recipes event for the month of July. Enjoy!
