strawberry creme fraiche ice cream

the last post was missing a recipe. how rude i am sometimes.

surely some ice cream will strengthen our bond.

strawberry creme fraiche ice cream!

are you familiar with creme fraiche? do you love creme fraiche? you should love it.
it's like a slightly less sour and more thick and creamy sour cream. it's a dream ingredient.

creme fraiche makes me think about the creme fraiche episode of south park.

and now, creme fraiche will make me think about south park and then ice cream.

simple icy creams... the color is cute and cheery, the taste is close-your-eyes good.

it's so smooth, light and fresh.
fresher than fraiche.

i put some fudge sauce on it, because it seemed like the smart decision.
i love this fudge sauce! it's gloopy in the best way.

dreamworld: the weekend lasts for 10 days and i have an endless supply of strawberry creme fraiche ice cream cones.

Strawberry Creme Fraiche Ice Cream
adapted from The Perfect Scoop by Dave Leibovitz

1 lb strawberries, washed and sliced
3/4 cup sugar*
1 tbsp kirsch (or vodka)
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup creme fraiche

*i used cane sugar because i was out of regular sugar, and it worked out splendidly

toss strawberries in a bowl with the sugar and kirsch. stir until the sugar begins to dissolve and strawberries are coated. let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. 
pulse the strawberries and their liquid with the creme fraiche, heavy cream and lemon juice in a blender or food processor until almost smooth, but still slightly chunky. refrigerate mixture for at least 1 hour. freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.
