Balsamic Strawberry Ice Cream

Summer is here! I’ve seen glimpses of it in between the rain! I promised more strawberry recipes, I’m finally about to deliver on that promise. I already have one delicious (sour cream) strawberry ice cream recipe in my arsenal (I would never order strawberry ice cream when out but you can’t beat it home made with delicious fresh strawberries), but then I spotted this recipe in BBC Good Food magazine (June 2016 issue). The original calls for white balsamic, whilst the idea of it excited me, I didn’t want to go hunting shops to find some and ordinary balsamic would surely work fine (it did). The combination of strawberries with balsamic vinegar is divine and I’d urge you to try it if you haven’t. I took this to a family BBQ and it was a big hit.

Ginger Lemonande

Having really enjoyed drinking roasted strawberry and basil lemonade in a lovely sunny garden the other weekend, I did feel a little like I’d cheated, having bought the lemonade and just adding the roasted strawberry and basil syrup. I vowed to soon make proper homemade lemonade, using honey instead of refined sugar. A few days later Love & Olive Oil posted a recipe for Ginger Lemonade and a plan was hatched; come rain or shine, I would be making lemonade at the weekend, and that is exactly what I did.
