Growing up, making homemade ice cream in the summer with fresh fruit was one of our weekend traditions. I love making homemade ice cream for a little get-together but I don't always have the time to make and chill the custard. This is one of my very favorite ways to make homemade ice cream in a hurry since you don’t have to cook the custard. Fresh and delicious!
STRAWBERRY BUTTERMILK ICE CREAM (NO COOK ICE CREAM)
Prep Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Cook Time: no cook but 10-15 minutes to spin the ice cream
2 quarts fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 ½ cups granulated sugar

Wash and hull the strawberries. Slice and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle the sugar and salt over the berries and let them sit until juicy, about 1 hour. Reserve ½ cup berries and set aside. Pour in buttermilk and cream. Add a ¼ teaspoon fresh lime juice. Use an immersion blender to puree. Add the reserved berries. Freeze according to the directions on your ice cream maker.
