Directions

For the ice cream: Puree the sliced berries, sugar, lemon juice and salt. Strain to remove seeds. Heat the heavy cream just to the boiling point and pour over the puree. Stir to combine, and chill overnight. Freeze the next day in an ice-cream machine, folding in the finely diced berries just at the end. Transfer to a container and freeze until firm.

For the brandy snaps: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a baking sheet.

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together in a saucepan. When it starts to bubble, remove from the heat and beat in the brandy and flour.

Using a teaspoon, place 6 spoonfuls, well apart from one another, on the baking sheet. Bake until flat and golden, 5 to 7 minutes. Let cool on the sheet just until they are firm enough to move, but still pliable (a matter of seconds). Shape over a rolling pin, or simply leave flat. Carry on with baking the second batch.

Serve a grand spoonful of ice cream with a crispy brandy snap!

    I've made this recipe twice now.

    However, as noted in other comments, it is 1 cup sugar and 2 cups cream.

    The second time I made it, I skipped the added diced berries and liked it better. It has a very strawberry flavor as it is and I thought the texture was smoother.

    I just made this recipe, at least I made it with the quantities of ingredients used on the episode: 4 cups sliced strawberries, 1 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoons lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 2 cups heavy creaman and an additional 2 cups of diced strawberries. Total strawberries was about 2 pounds. Total volume of the recipe came out at about 5-6 cups of ice cream. Now...I am not a large fan of non-custard ice creams, and I have a perfectly good recipe for a strawberry frozen custard. I don't know why I even considered making this - it must be the respect I have for Ms. Calder and her wonderful skill with and taste in foods! And this turned out just wonderful! Not so rich as a frozen custard but without a doubt the best strawberry ice cream I've ever eaten. I'll be serving this to tonight's meeting of the San Ignacio Supper Club - That's how good it is. Thanks for the recipe!

    I rewatched the episode and the ingredients were 2 quarts strawberries, 2 cups cream and 1 cup sugar. I believe the recipe was reduced to accomodate home quart size icecream makers. This icecream is delicious and very easy to make!
