There is just something about homemade ice cream...it's the taste of the snow capped mountain on a sunny day or maybe it's that warm feeling of the sun shinning on your shoulders on a Summer day; an idealized memory of Summer in culinary form. Brilliant pink fresh strawberry ice cream is a classic flavor and, along with chocolate and vanilla is an American favorite.
I love berries and eat them every morning for breakfast, however, strawberries served with sour cream.........they are the most delicious! David Lobowitz combined these two ingredients to make this delicious ice cream. I had the privilege of taking two classes from David when he was in Seattle a couple years ago. His recipes are infallible.... when followed. A couple of tips - macerating the berries before hand magically transforms even so so berries into fruits that are brilliantly red. Make sure you refrigerate the mixture for a full hour before churning and try to eat this soon after it is churned.

The timing of this post is perfect as the "sweet peas" are in the markets right now!! Peas are easy to grow, but with a very limited growing season. Furthermore, they do not stay fresh long after harvest, so enjoy them while you can!

The weather here in Seattle is spectacular! Perfectly sunny 75-80 F degree days! Yippie! The kind of day, you want to get out in the yard for play or just plating a few extra flowers for a little pop! Wee Bear and I went to my daughter's house the other night for dinner, I made this delicious arugula salad....light and screaming Summer with the local sweet strawberries. I made a very light lemon vinaigrette to top this healthy light salad.
