Roasted Strawberry and White Chocolate Ice Cream

Ice Cream | 12th August 2013 | By

Having recently posted and entered rhubarb, rose and white chocolate ice cream for We Should Cocoa, I was very tempted to swap it and use this one instead. I reckon this might be the best of the no churn ice-creams I’ve made so far. I’d read somewhere on the internet that roasting strawberries really brought out the flavour, which kind of makes sense as soon as you think about it. So when I was invited to a friend’s celebratory outdoor evening event – gosh it’s so good to be able to plan outdoor events – I thought I’d try making ice-cream with roasted strawberries.

Of course, when it came down to it, I couldn’t for the life of me remember where I’d seen the piece on roasting strawberries, so I just had a go. As strawberries aren’t that tart and this is usually quite a sweet ice-cream, I added a little cider vinegar to the roasting strawberries and reduced the amount of condensed milk used. I also thought I’d try a slightly different and simpler method of making the ice-cream and I’m glad to report, it worked very well.

The roasting did the trick, creating an ice-cream with a fabulous and quite intense strawberry flavour. The texture of this ice-cream is really smooth and quite light, but not in the least bit runny when it melts. Although it didn’t quite feed the five thousand, it had to go round quite a crowd. It was gratefully and vocally appreciated and stood out amongst the other delicacies with which it was served.

I am sending this off to Kate of What Kate Baked for this month’s Tea Time Treats where the theme is Ice-creams, Jellies and Chilled Desserts. This event is alternately hosted by Karen at Lavender and Lovage.

    A fabulous recipe for this months Tea Time Treats. I don’t own an ice cream maker so at this time of the year I’m constantly on the look out for new no churn ice creams. Thanks Choclette

      I’ve never even seen an ice-cream maker Kate, so don’t really know how they work. This one is dead easy though and soooo good.

    Very interesting using roasted strawberries. This is a yummy dessert which I am tempted to use for my sister’s birthday this week. The best desserts for summer are always ice creams and sorbets.
    Take care X

    Yum! I recently made chewy strawberries in the oven but haven’t managed to roast them. Adding to the list of things to try out!

      As long as you have room in the freezer, this is a simple but very tasty ice-cream to make. Wishing I’d made double the quantities now and stashed some away in our freezer.

    roasting strawberries is totally something I would do!.. this looks so lovely and summery, plus the current late crop of strawbs are a bit manky now so this is an ideal way to treat them and capture their goodness!

    Just getting around to catching up with my blog reading and had to stop and drool over this ‘must share’ post. The ice cream sounds absolutely delicious and very must make, want it right now, can’t wait to try it, moreish! I may need to use rasps, though, as all my strawberries are finished for the year.

      Glad you stopped by to take a look. Would be interested in how this would work with raspberries – very well I expect.

    I love doing unusual things to food with pairings not usually associated with each other, like figs in pepper, strawberries in balsamic vinegar and basil, watermelon and salty fetta etc. I will have to give your ice-cream a go.

      Strawberries in balsamic and basil I’ve tried, but I’ve not tried your other two suggestions and think I might quite like to.

    It’s been a ridiculously good year for strawberries this year (well, round here at least) and, amongst many other dishes, I have been roasting them but so far I haven’t made ice cream. Yours sounds lovely.

    I spotted this before but seeing it all over again has made me want to make it all the more. Strawberries are one of my two favourite foods so anything that brings out the flavour is a winner for me. I’ve bookmarked it now ready for when I can have a go myself!
