If you happen to have an ice cream maker or you want to try this flavor through another ice creaming method - here are the proportions for one quart:
1 lb of organic strawberries
1 tbsp of fennel seeds (ground)
1/2 c. of cane sugar
a bit of lemon zest
a squeeze of lemon juice from one lemon
a pinch of salt
* and for the ice cream maker the only other thing it needed was 2 cups of heavy cream. I mixed all the ingredients together and then mashed it with a potato masher, added half of that to a blender with the cream and pureed. I then added the puree to the remaining mixture and poured it all into the ice cream maker. 20 minutes and several hand-cranks later we had super yummy ice cream.
I am thinking this might be my best yard sale find of the summer. Though I am still hopeful for a few more fabulous yard sale finds.
