I bought an ice cream maker last June, and spent much of last summer making ice cream from the recipe booklet that accompanied the machine. I even made up some recipes of my own. And I was pretty content to leave it at that. There was one ice cream cookbook that piqued my interest though — pastry chef David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop. Every time I saw it at my local bookstore, I would look through it longingly but decided I would wait to buy it this summer. Since I am now on a cookbook acquisition moratorium, that purchase will have to wait. Thankfully, David’s recipe for Strawberry Frozen Yogurt is posted on his blog so I don’t have to miss out. The recipe is so simple. First you cut up strawberries, add sugar and let sit for a couple of hours.
Put it in the freezer to freeze until hard. It’s really yummy stuff — so bright and fresh tasting. And I love the simplicity of the ingredients. I just can’t wait for summer weather to come to New England so we can really enjoy it in earnest!
