Strawberry Sour Cream Ice Cream

March 10, 2013

Winter in Florida is everything ‘strawberry’.  Seems that lately there is either a festival, parade, fresh market, two for the price of one sale and/or best of all, the treats from the gardens.  I have been making a batch of different strawberry ice cream every week and I think I have settled on this particular combination.  But ‘all’ of them were fabulous.
