First things first, gotta milk the cows! We don't actually milk by hand... I was having fun squirting the milk at Evie while she snapped this picture though!
We fill a 5 gallon pail with fresh milk and let it sit in the pretty barn fridge for two days. This gives the milk a chance to separate with the cream rising to the top.
We make our strawberry mixture in the blender: strawberries, lemon juice, vanilla and sugar.
And puree it.
The kids tell me about 20 times that it's finished because they just can't wait any longer to dig in! It actually takes about 20 minutes for the ice cream maker to churn it.
And the best part of all....
