The tartness of the lime marries well with the sweetness of the strawberries.
Strawberry and lime syrup ice cream
- ICE CREAM
- 7 egg yolks
- 300g castor sugar
- 250ml fresh cream
- 250g strawberries, finely chopped
- LIME SYRUP
- juice and rind of 3 limes, rind finely sliced
- 200g castor sugar
For the ice cream, beat the egg yolks with 200g sugar until pale.
Heat the cream in a pot and add the egg mixture. Cook until the mixture is thick and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Allow to cool completely.
Add the strawberries to the remaining sugar and allow to stand for about 30 minutes.
Mix the custard with the strawberries and spoon into a plastic container. Refrigerate until set. Remove, stir and refrigerate again. Repeat three times.
For the syrup, put the lime juice and rind into a pot with the sugar, and cook until a syrup has formed. You might have to add about 20ml water so that it’s not too sticky. Allow to cool and serve over the strawberry ice cream.
