  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla
  •  pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup whipping cream


  • Place the strawberries and 3/4 cup sugar in a medium-sized pot over high heat and conveyit to a boil. Once it boils, stir the pot and reduce the warmth to a simmer for five minutes.

  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the remaining 1/2 cup sugar.

Whisk a number of the recent milk into the egg yolks to temper them,then add the egg yolks to the pot of hot milk. Place the pot over medium heat and, whisking constantly but slowly, bring the milk almost to a boil. you would like the custard to thicken to the purpose where it'll coat the rear of a spoon.

*Confirm to use ripe, in-season strawberries. If you're making this strawberry frozen dessert within the fall or winter it's best to use frozen strawberries.
