Strawberry Ice Cream

I'm just going to town this morning! I'm actually sitting here watching "The Music and the Spoken Word" while I put in some of my favs of the day. So, this recipe is divine! I mean... AMAZING! Try it for a FHE activity/treat some night! - It makes quite a bit.

Make this irresistible ice cream in a 6-quart ice cream freezer. Use peaches instead of strawberries for another fabulous flavor!

4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 c. boiling water
3/4 c. orange juice frozen concentrate (undiluted)
3/4 c. lemonade juice frozen concentrate (undiluted)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk
5 c. whole milk
3 1/2 c. fresh strawberries, mashed (mash really good if you don't like chunks)
Red food coloring (optional)
2 (7 pound) bags of ice
Rock Salt

Combine sugar, salt, and boiling water. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the orange and lemonade concentrates. Stir in whipping cream, evaporated milk, whole milk, and strawberries. Add red food coloring, a drop at a time (I don't do this), until mixture reaches desired color. Freeze in a 6-quart freezer, using ice and rock salt according to freezer manufacture's directions. Makes 5-6 quarts.
To make peach ice cream, substitute 3/12 c. mashed fresh peaches for the berries. Use a combination of red and yellow food coloring to attain the proper color.
