Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream

Yes, this is my 5th dessert recipe in a row.  Yes, I am pregnant.

3 egg yolks (beaten)
1/2 pint milk
1/2 pint double/heavy cream
1/2 csugar
2 cups of strawberries
1 teaspoon of vanilla

Take the strawberries and mash them in with half the sugar (ie. 2oz or 50g) in a bowl. Place in the refrigerator whilst making the rest of the recipe.

In a separate saucepan, mix the egg yolks with the milk, salt and the remaining sugar. Place over a medium heat just to boiling point (stirring all the time). DO NOT LET IT BOIL.

Transfer the mixture into a chilled bowl to cool. When cool place in the refrigerator for up to 3 hours, remembering to stir the mixture from time to time. When cool, stir into the mixture the cream and vanilla essence and then blend in the strawberry/sugar mixture.

Transfer the complete mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
