I love having fresh home made ice cream, you know it has fresh ingredients with no additives. The ricotta cream leaves a slight, delicious tang that compliments the strawberries perfectly. Making ice cream yourself gives it a special enough touch to serve to company, as seen in the picture as a tasting party, or right out of the container tastes even better! I made this ice cream for my Mother and Mother in law, who both are amazing cooks and bakers. They gave me two thumbs up and some suggests of course…. 😉 One suggestion being to cut the strawberries smaller, so now the recipe calls for the strawberries to be diced!
