Strawberry Ginger Ice

Ingredients

  • 2 and 1/4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/2 tsp lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup white grape juice, divided
  • 2 and 1/4 cups frozen strawberries, divided
Directions:
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water, ginger and lemon peel.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring and cook until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool.
  • Place 2 cups of the fresh berries, 1/3 cup of the sugar syrup and 2 tbs of the juice in a blender.
  • Blend until thoroughly pureed, adding a bit more juice if needed.
  • Scrape down the sides of the blender at least once during the process.
  • Add 2 cups of the frozen strawberries and pulse into the mix, scraping and stirring as necessary.
  • The resulting texture is going to depend on the strawberries and the heat of the day and other factors, so take a look at how thick the mixture is.
  • Add more frozen berries to get it thicker or more fresh berries and a bit more juice or water if you need more liquid.
  • Continue pulsing and stirring until thoroughly combined and pureed.
  • Taste the mix and add more or the sugar syrup if you’d like it sweeter.
  • Serve immediately or freeze for a bit to get the ice more firm.
