“No ice cream machine? No problem not necessary for this recipe. From Cook's Country-Aug. 2011. I made yesterday and it is delicious, but next time I will increase the strawberries from 1 1/2 cups to 2 cups so changed it here. I also wonder what would happen if you left a few berries chunky? The texture is good and color is a nice pink. The vodka idea is intriguing--"to prevent the strawberry solids from icing up" is what the article says-and it works! If you plan to store the ice cream for more than a few days, place plastic wrap directly on its surface. Mine froze very hard so next time, I am going to set it in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving to see if it softens a bit. Raspberries might be good too?”
