Strawberries, cream, and all things nice..

Thankyou everyone for all your lovely support, button placements, facebook fanning, and general loveliness. I've had a really fantabulous response to my website, so fingers crossed that some things start to happen soon on the ordering front!!

In the meantime, care to join me with some Strawberry Ice? Here's what you need:

A punnet of strawberries, chopped and boiled down with sugar to taste, a twist of black pepper, and half a tsp balsamic. Make a nice syrup from that.

A custard made from half a pint of boiled milk into which you beat 100g caster sugar, 150 ml double cream, 1 tsp vanilla essence, and 4 egg yolks.

Stir the two together and either freeze the long way (in a dish, in the freezer, stir every 4 hours) or put it into an icecream maker to churn.
