Ice Cream and Sorbet

We have gotten in the habit of making homemade icecream a couple times a month and have come up with some pretty good stuff. I didn't take any pictures because I was too busy eating it so instead I will put up some pics of the people that helped make and or eat it! Poor Dave is probably getting really tired of hauling ice cream back and forth the 35 steps from his house since our freezer is too full to put it in!

Strawberry Ice Cream
4 cups strawberries sliced or pureed in blender/food processor
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 quart half and half
1 cup lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together and put in ice cream maker. It tastes amazing...strawberry with a hint of lemon, yum!

Pineapple Sorbet
1 pineapple
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 tsp vanilla

Cook sugar and water in pan until sugar is dissolved. Cut up pinapple and puree with sugar water and vanilla. Chill in fridge for four hours and then put in ice cream maker.
Make Strawberry Mango Sorbet by substituting 1 pound of strawberries and 3 mangoes for the pineapple.
