There is a plentiful supply of them at the moment and with the weather just turning into a mini heat wave this is a perfect, quick so you are not in the kitchen all day, recipe for the moment.
You will need,
100g or 4oz caster sugar
100ml or 3½fl oz boiling water
500g or 1lb 2oz strawberries
All you have to do is dissolve the sugar in the boiling water, let it simmer for about two minutes to make a sugar syrup. Then let this cool a little, while you wash and cut the tops off the strawberries. Now add the berries and the syrup together in a blender or food processor. Start the machine of your choice and turn the strawberries and syrup into a puree
Now you have to pass this through a fine sieve into a bowl. Now let this cool down totally, or chill in the fridge.
Now if you are lucky enough you can place the puree in an ice cream maker, churn it for twenty to to twenty five minutes and it is ready. Or pop it in the freezer, keep stirring it and beating the mix until it is smooth, or pop it back in the food processor to break up the ice crystals. Then keep it in the freezer until you want it.
And that is that, easy, tasty and so right for a hot summer’s day.
