Noah is going to be four next week. FOUR! He’s having a putt putt golf birthday party this weekend and requested strawberry cupcakes with strawberry frosting. Usually I go all out with the food for his party but I decided to keep it simple this year and order pizza since we are leaving for vacation early Tuesday morning. Well, I couldn’t just leave well enough alone so I decided to make a few different ice creams to go with his homemade cupcakes.
Since he seemed to be on a strawberry kick I figured strawberry ice cream was a requirement. With a little searching I found this recipe for roasted strawberry ice cream. I’ve never heard of roasting strawberries and was very intrigued and just had to give it a try. The strawberries are roasted with sugar, vanilla and wine then half of them are pureed and mixed into the custard mixture.
It’s sweet, creamy and bursting with strawberry goodness. I love that the ice cream has the strawberry puree and chunks throughout for a double punch.
Roasted Strawberry Ice Cream
recipe adapted from Novice Housewife
1 lb. fresh strawberries, quartered
½ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ tbsp white wine
¼ to ½ cup granulated sugar (depends on how sweet you want your ice cream and how sweet your strawberries are; I used 1/4 + 1/8 cup)
3 egg yolks
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1 cup heavy cream
