Strawberry season is officially here, and that means lots of fresh strawberry desserts are in the works! I’ve been waiting with baited breath for local berries to become available; staring longingly at the roadside farm stand near our house each time we drove by. Last weekend the farm announced their berries were finally ready, and opened with a lovely display of buckets and buckets of fresh strawberries.
I picked up a big flat of sweet, bright red berries, and my first order of business was making this creamy, homemade strawberry ice cream. Frozen desserts of all kinds are a hands-down favorite in the Swoon Kitchen, but it’s pretty hard to top fresh-churned homemade ice cream, particularly when it’s bursting with fresh, flavorful fruit. Happy Eating!
