Easy Nineteenth Century Strawberry Ice Cream

Ice cream was John Simons’ one, particular culinary weakness. Each lunch at Simons Mansion ended with a dish of it.

From Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy

Strawberry Ice Cream

1 pint ripe strawberries
1 pint cream
4 ounces powered sugar

Rub strawberries through a sieve, add cream, then sugar. Freeze.
