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.
