STRAWBERRY FOOD PROCESSOR ICE CREAM

 

 

INGREDIENTS:                                    

 

12 oz. frozen Strawberries *

1 Tbsp. Lemon or Lime Juice  (Lime is my preference)

1/4 cup Superfine or Powdered Sugar

1 Pint Heavy Cream

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

  1. Fit the processor workbowl with the chopping disc. Place the Frozen Strawberries in the bowl and put the lid on.  **

 

     A large Food Processor Bowl will hold up to 1 Pint of Berries

Note:  You can place a whole pint of Berries in a large Food Processor                                                     Bowl.  This photo is just to show the Hulled Berries in the Food                                                     Processor Bowl.

 

  1. Use the PULSE BUTTON to break the Strawberries up into small pieces.

 

 

 

 

  1. Press the ON BUTTON and continue running until the Berries look like snow or shaved ice.

  1. Remove the lid and add the Lemon Juice, Sugar, and Cream. Run for 2-3 minutes or until the Strawberries become lighter in color and the volume has expanded.

  1. Serve immediately with Fruit Sauce or Whipped Cream. Or freeze and scoop into serving dishes later.  (If freezing, allow to soften at room temperature until it becomes easy to scoop or reprocess before serving)

 

 

Yield:  Approx. 8 Servings

 

*Fresh Strawberries may be used.  Clean them with a damp paper towel and then remove the hulls.  (Stem and leaves)

 

Place in a shallow dish or tray and freeze them until almost hard.

 

 

 

**Alternatively, the medium shredding blade can be used.  Lightly push down on the Berries to shred them.  The pusher may have to be lifted slightly to facilitate the shredding.  This is actually a better way to break the Berries up into very small pieces.

FOOD PROCESSOR ICE CREAM

 

 

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream (made in the Food Processor)

 

 

 

Summer is the perfect time to perfect your Food Processor Techniques.  And what better way than to create your own Ice Cream Master Pieces.  This article shows you how to use your Food Processor to make Ice Cream.  Once you learn the technique you can go on to create your own recipes of frozen fruit desserts or snacks.

I chose Strawberries because they are plentiful right now.  In some parts of the world they are only available during the Summer.  If that is the case where you live, you can freeze your fresh Strawberries so that you have them available all year long.

To freeze the Berries or other Fruit, first remove the hulls (if using stone fruit, slice in half and remove the pits.

Wash and dry the fruit and then place on a paper towel-lined shallow tray that will fit in your freezer.  Once the fruit is frozen you can either place in a plastic bag and leave in the freezer until ready to use.  Or you can use immediately once they are frozen.

To make the Ice Cream follow the recipe for Food Processor Ice Cream.   http://www.sylveeeskitchen.com/?s=+Strawberry+Ice+Cream

LEMON JUICE DAY – August 29th – 2012

 

August 29th is ‘Lemon Juice Day’.  How many ways can you think of to use Lemon Juice?  Can you live without Lemon Juice?  Some people do, but I couldn’t.  There are so many ways to use Lemon Juice and it is such a necessity to keep so many foods from oxidizing and turning that ugly dark color that makes food unappetizing to eat.

 

 

 

Lemon Juice is an ‘Anti-oxidant’ – a product that protects the surface of other foods from the oxygen in the atmosphere.  Oxygen reacts with foods like Bananas, Apples and Avocadoes and turns them an ugly dark color and makes the food lose their palatability.

Lemon Juice is also an excellent and necessary ingredient in many baked goods, entrees and beverages.

 

Entrees that require or are enhanced by the addition of Lemon Juice are:

Veal or Chicken Piccata   chicken-picatta/

 Grilled Shrimp  grilled-shrimp/

Beef, Chicken or Lamb Kabobs

Condiments that use Lemon Juice are:

 Seafood Cocktail Sauce   seafood-cocktail-sauce/

Salsa (Lemon or Lime Juice)

Guacamole (Lemon or Lime Juice)

 Baked goods that use Lemon Juice are:

Lemon Meringue Pie  lemon-meringue-pie/

Lemon Meringue Cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Cream

Lemon Mousse

Beverages that use Lemon Juice are:

Lemon Ade  sparkling-lemonade/

Watermelon Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade

Iced Tea

 Lemon Juice is also a great flavor enhancement for fruit such as Melons, Berries and Tropical Fruit such as Mangoes and Papaya.  If you have a lemon tree that provides you with an abundance of lemons, squeeze them and freeze the juice in ice cube trays for easy use whenever you need them.

CULINARY MAKEOVERS #1 – STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE

Strawberry Marshmallow Cream Pie

 

How many times have you tried out a new recipe or simply an old one that did not turn out right?  Did you eat it anyways, toss it or try to create something new out of it?  There are times when mistakes cannot be remedied, but most of the time, if you just think creatively, a new dish can be created.  Let’s take the old phrase “Necessity is the Mother of Invention” and turn it into something new.  How about “Creations born of mistakes”?

A recipe gone wrong need not be the only way that one dish can be turned into another.  This series will deal with foods that you can create from leftovers, overabundance and mistakes.  We are going to start with a Strawberry Marshmallow Cream Pie.  Everyone loves Cream Pie and almost everyone loves Strawberries.  Since it is almost always Strawberry Time in Southern California there are always vendors parked on the street, in front of the Post Office, in front of other stores, etc.  Having purchased several boxes and having more than we could eat before they would go bad, I decided to make Strawberry Marshmallows with them.  The reason I decided on Marshmallows is that #1 – I love Marshmallows! And there is nothing like homemade marshmallows.  They taste nothing like the commercially made ones.  They are light and fluffy and you can make them any flavor that you want.  Plus I had an abundance of Egg Whites left over from making cakes that used only the yolks.

Not having made Strawberry Marshmallows before, I didn’t want to increase thegelatin in the recipe before I tried it out as it was, except for the addition of the Strawberries.  Of course, the Strawberries, once they were pureed, increased the liquid content of the Marshmallow mixture and consequently, the marshmallows did not set up completely.  But once having tasted the concoction with a spoon, there was no way we could let it go to waste.  Therefore, I came up with the idea for a Strawberry Marshmallow Cream Pie.  The crust is made from pulverized  Vanilla Wafers with the addition of a small amount of butter.  I made a Vanilla Pastry Cream to go in the bottom of the pie and then added sliced Strawberries to that.

When I started to spoon out the Marshmallow mixture, I realized that it was so airy that by the time I got it into the pie shell on top of the pastry cream, that it would not hold its shape.  To remedy that situation I whipped up a cup and a half of whipping cream and folded the marshmallow mixture into the whipped cream and then layered that mixture onto the pastry cream.  To finish the pie, I placed some sliced strawberries around the edges (small whole ones or halves would be more elegant) and then made some  chocolate curls for the top and placed a whole strawberry in the middle.  Voila!  We now have a delicious and beautiful spring or summer dessert.

I still have Egg Whites and will make another batch of Marshmallows, although not strawberry this time, because by the time we eat the pie we will have tired of strawberries for a while.  Look in your refrigerator and try to figure out what you can do with the leftover food in there.  You will be surprised at what you may come up with!

For the recipe for this pie please go to strawberry-marshmallow-cream-pie/.  The Pie recipe and the Pastry Cream recipe will be there.
