Do you ever think back on something that you ate as a child and wonder if it really tastes as good as you remember it tasting? I had that experience recently. I was thinking about, and craving, a homemade strawberry ice cream that my mom used to make - no ice-cream freezer required. So I contacted my mom and asked if she remembered the "strawberry ice-cream that used sour cream" and, sure enough, not only did she remember it but she still had the recipe (turns out it was my paternal grandmother's recipe). I promptly made a batch and am now wondering how I had forgotten about this treat for so many years! I have been missing out on some serious summertime goodness!
The recipe, as posted, is the original recipe multiplied by 3. I can't even begin to imagine only making 1/3 of a batch. What was my grandmother thinking? If you prefer your ice-cream sans chunks, feel free to throw all the ingredients into the blender and pulse a couple of times. That is what I did with a portion of the ice-cream so that I could pour it into popsicle molds for ice-cream popsicles. The popsicles were a great variation on a very delicious, very refreshing summertime treat.
