The disparity, why make an ice cream? Why not just eat and enjoy the whistle clean finish of fresh, warm, strawberries and slather them in unctuous local cream with a hint… an insinuation… a mere nuance of golden caster sugar?

Strawberries form part of our finest jewels in the silk lined box of summer delights, hand-harvested, soft-fruits that punctuate the symphony of iced, emollient beige. The disparity resolved as here follows the rational for my no machine, Strawberries and Cream ice cream.
