Ingredients:  
1 lb. fresh strawberries
12 oz. granulated sugar, about 1.5 cups
1.5 cup cold whipping cream
1.5 cup cold water
dash of lemon juice (only if fruit isnít ďbrightĒ enough)

Directions:
Directions:
1. Clean and cut washed berries into quarters, or just smaller pieces.
2. Put berries, sugar and water into a blender or food processor and blend until liquid and smooth. (This is also where youíll add lemon juice if necessary.)
3. Combine the cream with the strawberry mixture and mix thoroughly until blended.
4. Freeze as indicated by the manufacturer of your ice cream maker.

Tips:
- To make sure the mixture freezes really well, do all the blitzing in the blender and then stick the mixture into the fridge for a few hours to make sure itís nice and cold before it goes into the ice cream maker.
- This works for stone fruits (like peaches) as well, but with stone fruits you always need to add a dash of lemon juice to the mixture. Iíve also used this basic recipe for raspberries and blueberries - you just have to keep tasting the mixture to get the right blend of tart (lemon juice) and sweet (sugar).
