Yesterday, we were busy in the kitchen. My beau made strawberry ice cream with the fresh strawberries we bought over the weekend at the strawberry festival that you can read about HERE. I made strawberry jam. Both recipes turned out well.
The base for strawberry ice cream is vanilla ice cream. Afterwards, chopped fresh strawberries go in:
We had it for dessert after supper in these 1960s vintage dessert dishes. I added fresh sliced strawberries for that extra WOW!
Here is one of the jars of my strawberry jam. Yes, the jam is that red; NO food coloring. And the taste is out of this world! I gave my aunt a couple jars of my strawberry jam. She said that homemade foods are the best; what we all buy in the grocery store cannot compare – not even close. And she is right.
Following are the recipes for the ice cream and jam. Enjoy!
