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.
