1 lb of strawberries, rinsed and hulled (isn’t that just a great word??)
¾ cup sugar
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Tiniest pinch of salt
Slice the strawberries and combine them in a stainless steel bowl with sugar. Allow them to *macerate for about an hour. After that hour, pour the strawberries and all the juices into a blender and puree this until completely smooth. Add the salt, and pour this mixture into your ice cream freezer (aka, ice cream maker). Freeze until sorbet-like. Eat immediately. You won’t have leftovers, so no worries about storage!
*macerate: fancy pants talk for “marinate”- it tends to deal with things sweet- allowing them to soften or break up…. And in this case, we are allowing the strawberries to release their juices with the sugar, creating something extraordinary!
